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!

On February 1, he had donned the majestic IOPC Crown. A little over two months later, he upheld The Millionaire title. What a year this is turning out to be for PokerGuru Ambassador Laksh Pal Singh! The 25-year-old MTT pro dominated the annual leaderboard rankings for six consecutive weeks before losing the spot to Manish Lakhotia last week. That is before another breakout Sunday performance has pushed him back on top. In fact, he is now topping the 2021 profits charts as well!

But it isn`t just the annual charts that the Chandigarh-based pro is topping. Singh`s Millionaire win ensured that he reigns supreme on the weekly and monthly leaderboards as well! The icing on the cake is that Singh was also our “PokerGuru Star of the Week!”

The two-time Millionaire champion Manish Lakhotia made another strong showing this week but slips down to the #2 spot on both the monthly and yearly rankings.

The top-ranked player of 2020, Young Gun Gaurav Sood, is dangerously close to reclaiming the #1 spot on the annual charts yet again. He moved up two places to #3 in the annual leaderboard standings this week.

Laksh Pal Singh`s teammate at PokerGuru Staking Arjanveer Singh Chadha, was leading the April standings last week. However, the blistering runs by Laksh Pal Singh and Manish Lakhotia have relegated him to the #3 spot on the monthly charts. He`s also lost his #2 position in the annual charts, moving down to #5, although the competition is still neck-to-neck with a little than ₹60,000 separating him from Gaurav Sood at #3.

We are still in the fourth month of the year, and the competition, especially at the top of the annual leaderboard, has been nothing short of fierce. Already eight players have crossed the ₹1 Crore-mark in annual winnings (across domestic sites).

PokerGuru Ambassadors continue to dominate the MTT standings, with as many as five players from PokerGuru Staking occupying a top 10 rank in the annual leaderboard standings.

Even though Laksh Pal Singh (1st with ₹1.43 Crores) & Manish Lakhotia (2nd for ₹1.38 Crores) have somewhat pulled ahead over the others, there is an intense three-way battle currently waging between Young Gun Gaurav Sood (Rank #3 for ₹1.23 Crores) and PokerGuru Ambassador’s Ashish Ahuja (Rank#4 for ₹1.23 Crores) and Arjanveer Singh Chadha (Rank#5 for ₹1.22 Crores).

Coming back to the weekly rankings, Prabhat Paliya secured the #2 position behind Laksh Pal Singh, while Young Gun Shardul Parthasarathi placed third.

Young Gun Kanchan Sharma (Rank#4 for ₹9 Lakhs) and Niharika Bindra (Rank#5 for ₹8.46 Lakhs) round out the top five places on the weekly charts.

PokerGuru Ambassador Laksh Pal Singh seems to have found the Midas touch. Mentored by arguably India`s top MTT coach, Aditya Agarwal, Singh`s blistering Sunday run has pushed him to the top of the weekly – monthly – and yearly rankings!

Last Sunday, the former Young Gun took down his career-first Millionaire title for ₹14.47 Lakhs. He came close to winning the Adda52 Big Game as well and ended up placing runner-up for ₹8.88 Lakhs. With a cumulative Sunday score of ₹23.35 Lakhs, it`s not surprising to see him topping the weekly charts!

He topped the weekly rankings. He topped the monthly rankings. So, is anyone at all surprised that PokerGuru Ambassador Laksh Pal Singh dominates the annual rankings as well?

The Gurgaon-based pro had claimed the ‘numero uno’ spot on the yearly rankings after winning Spartan Poker’s IOPC The Crown on February 1. He dominated the rankings for six consecutive weeks before Manish Lakhotia usurped him from his throne last week. But even Lakhotia couldn’t keep Singh away from the top position for too long.

On the back of a firecracker Sunday performance that saw Singh clinch his career-first Millionaire title and finish runner-up in the Adda52 Big Game, the Young Gun has snatched the #1 rank once again.

Singh is now sitting atop ₹6.4 Crores in lifetime online winnings, which includes ₹1.43 Crores in annual winnings. He is also the most profitable MTT player of the year currently with ₹82.43 Lakhs in net profits.
