PokerBaazi’s Game Changer 4.0 monopolized the attention of the domestic circuit this past week. The 5,500 entry buy-in tourney attracted 3,990 entries, falling just 50,000 short of its ambitious guarantee. Championing the tournament was Bengaluru-resident Jaikiran Kumar, who bagged a career-best 33.16 Lakhs, propelling himself to the top of the weekly rankings. In fact, runner-up Mohak Kapoor and third-place finisher Raman Gujral round out the top three positions on this week`s leaderboard!

The inaugural GPS Main Event champion Apratim Sharma is still the player to catch on the top of the monthly leaderboard with 35.55 Lakhs in recorded earnings through September.

Despite a few changes in the lower rungs on the yearly leaderboard, the top three places remain unchanged from last week, with Young Gun Gaurav Sood completing 20 glorious weeks at the top of the table.
