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

We’ve seen a bunch of young and driven players champion some of the biggest online poker tournaments this year. So if Anurag Srivastava and Abhishek Maheshwari captured the January IOPC Millionaire and the EndBoss titles, it was 24-year-old Harshit Sanghi who took down the biggest-ever IOPC tourney ever hosted – the ₹3 Crores GTD IOPC Main Event – The Crown last Sunday!

Sanghi’s trailblazing run in the record-breaking event took him past 4,081 contenders, rewarding him with a life-changing ₹47.33 Lakhs after a three-way deal. Needless to say, Sanghi the ‘HeroCaller’ reigns proudly atop our weekly online leaderboard.

Following Sanghi on the week’s online charts are his immediate competitors in the IOPC Main Event, runner-up Kunal Bhatia and third-place finisher Sumit Sapra.

Sanghi may have won the regal crown that came with his victory, but that wasn`t enough to unseat last week’s IOPC The Millionaire Legends champion Sriharsha Doddapaneni from the top of the monthly leaderboard. Doddapaneni was the #1 ranked player in July with ₹63.50 Lakhs in monthly winnings. He has already accumulated ₹2.31 Crores in winnings this year and is ranked #2 on the annual leaderboard. But what comes as the BIG surprise this week is that he has overtaken Sood as the most profitable player this year. With ₹1.31 Crore in annual profits compared to Sood’s ₹1.28 Crore, Doddapaneni is now the #1 ranked player on the profit leaderboard!

Our first-ever Young Gun Nitish Gupta and seasoned reg Sumit Sapra are right behind Doddapaneni on the monthly leaderboard.

We’re seven months done and dusted in 2020, and Gaurav Sood has kept his sails high as the year’s most prominent online winner. He sits on top of the yearly charts again this week, and that’s 12 straight weeks on the numero uno spot for the young player from Gurgaon! Doddapaneni is a somewhat distant second even though he has overtaken Sood in profits. Rounding out the top three in this category is Anant Purohit.
