In this feature, we bring you to the top three weekly, monthly, and yearly performers every Sunday. These rankings are based on cumulative winnings (cashes). However, the rankings only include players registered to our online ranking system, so hurry up and register if you haven’t signed up on PokerGuru yet!

Merry Christmas, folks! As we get ready to look back at a fantastic year for online poker, Gaurav Sood sits on the cusp of creating history. After dominating the annual rankings for 34 consecutive weeks last year, the 25-year-old poker prodigy is just days away from repeating the feat AGAIN in an almost similar fashion for a second straight year!

The dentist turned poker pro from New Delhi not only completes 21 weeks on top of the annual charts today but retains his tag as the winningest player (by a significant margin) on our extensive player database! He FT-ed two events this week, earning approximately ₹4.06 Lakhs. With ₹4.41 Crores in annual winnings and ₹2.19 Crores in net profits, Sood remains the unchallenged king of online MTTs.

Manish Lakhotia, the only other player with over ₹4 Crores in annual winnings, sits a little over ₹21 Lakhs behind Sood at #2. PokerGuru Ambassador Laksh Pal Singh stays put at #3 – maintaining the status quo of the top order of the annual charts that has remained unchanged for over four months now!

Unlike the annual standings, the monthly rankings got a makeover after Rising Star Ritwik Khanna shipped the Moz Roller last Sunday for a personal-best ₹15.40 Lakhs, charging ahead of the #2 ranked Punya Behera and #3 ranked Young Gun Anuj Yadav!

The Kolkata reg Harsh Bubna stormed his way to the top of the weekly charts after bagging the single-largest score this week, a career-best ₹16.12 Lakhs in the ₹1 Crore GTD Patni Millionaire. The monthly topper Ritwik Khanna comes in at #2 on the weekly charts (also climbing to #9 in the annual charts). The WCS #95 – The Millionaire – Main Event champion Vivek Bajaj rounds out the top three names on the weekly standings.

1. Ritwik Khanna

Monthly Cashes – ₹37,43,778

Monthly Profit – ₹23,17,442

Monthly Leaderboard Points – 5,667

Ritwik Khanna’s dominating run in December has been the talk of the poker town. Still, this past week was extraordinary in many ways for the 24-year-old poker pro. What particularly stands out is his winning run in Adda52’s Moz Roller for a career-best ₹15.40 Lakhs last Sunday.

The Moz Roller title might have overshadowed his insane consistency. Still, just to recap his December exploits, Khanna had won the WCS #48 – Deepstack earlier and has 10 FT finishes to his name this month already! With ₹37.44 Lakhs (includes ₹23.17 Lakhs in profits) earned in December, Khanna has pushed past other breakout December winners like Punya Behera and Young Gun Anuj Yadav!
