The year so far has been great for PokerGuru Ambassadors, with many of them consistently featuring in the top five of the weekly, monthly, and yearly leaderboards.

It was a clean sweep for PokerGuru Staking this week, with Rony Chowdhury and Laksh Pal Singh headlining the weekly and yearly charts, respectively (we have not covered the monthly ranking since this is the first week of the month). While Singh has featured in the top three of the weekly-monthly-yearly charts several times this year, this is Chowdhury’s first time leading the weekly rankings in 2021.

Singh’s phenomenal run in the IOPC The Crown last month gave him the impetus to crack the top three of the yearly rankings. His continued spectacular form elevated him to the ‘numero uno’ position on the annual leaderboard last week, and he has retained his spot this week as well. In fact, he was the #1 ranked player in February.

Singh’s fellow teammate Ashish Munot has featured in the top three of the yearly rankings for three consecutive weeks. He has jumped up to the #2 rank on the annual charts this week, pushing Young Gun Arsh Grover down to #3.

Rony Chowdhury had a firecracker start to the week with his runner-up finish in The Millionaire on Sunday. He picked up several other deep runs throughout the week to race past the ATOC Mini Main Event champion Surbhit Grover (who netted the week`s single-biggest score of 15 Lakhs) and claim the top seat in the weekly leaderboards. Grover settled for rank #2. Nitin Arora placed third, rounding out the top three of the weekly charts.
