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!

Another week comes to an end, leaving behind a trail of intense action. Starting off with the weekly leaderboard standings, with two PokerGuru Ambassadors securing the top two slots, Team PokerGuru made quite some noise once again. Sunday`s Spartan Poker The Millionaire champion Mithun Mahesh, predictably, bags the #1 rank with his teammate and Monday’s The Big Deal winner, Ankit Wadhawan, occupying the #2 spot on the weekly leaderboard. The latest Destiny champion Siddharth Gangwar rounds off the top 3 places on the weekly charts.

PokerGuru Ambassador Kartik Ved‘s blistering run on May 9 and May 11 got him an unprecedented lead in the monthly rankings. With 56.61 Lakhs in winnings this month, Kartik Ved is still hanging on to that early advantage and is a comfortable 12.89 Lakhs ahead of Goonjan Mall, currently ranked #2 on the May leaderboard.

With two days left for the month to culminate and the last Sunday of May coming up tomorrow, only shipping a big-guaranteed tourney like The Millionaire can help Goonjan Mall displace Kartik Ved as the May topper. So, for the time being, it will be safe to assume that Kartik Ved will be ending May in the top seat, with Goonjan Mall and Gaurav Sood placing #2 and #3, respectively.

The competition at the top of the annual leaderboard is getting fiercer with each passing week. For all practical purposes, it’s been a three-way battle for the #1 rank between Manish Lakhotia, Laksh Pal Singh, and Gaurav Sood these last several weeks. This week, the Siliguri-based pro upstaged Laksh Pal Singh, ending the latter`s three-week reign (nine weeks in total), to become the top-ranked player in the country. Singh drops down to the #2 position, while Young Gun Gaurav Sood retains his #3 rank from last week – although the gap is still close.

Given how frequently the #1 rank on the annual leaderboard has exchanged hands recently, it’s hard to say if Manish Lakhotia will be able to hold onto his lead till next week, especially with Laksh Pal Singh (trailing by 4.41 Lakhs) and Gaurav Sood (trailing by 4.56 Lakhs) in such close proximity.
