In this feature, we bring you to the top three weekly, monthly, and yearly performers every weekend. 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!

The second week of July has been quite eventful! PokerBaazi ran the third edition of its most-popular tournament, the Game Changer ₹2 Crores GTD, and the big winners from this tournament created quite a shakeup in the leaderboards. Triumphing over a 4,486-strong entry field, former PMVS Main Event winner Siddhanth Kripalani claimed the title for a whopping ₹40.02 Lakhs! While Kripalani has featured in our weekly rankings before, this week, for the first time, the pro from Mumbai grabbed the pole position with ₹40.48 Lakhs in weekly winnings. This incredible Game Changer win was also responsible for Kripalani topping the monthly leaderboard, with ₹41.65 Lakhs in winnings, and ₹38.86 Lakhs monthly profits.

Up-and-coming player Shardul Parthasarathi also deserves special mention. Though he lost the Game Changer title to Kripalani, his second-place score of ₹26.48 Lakhs was enough to get him to second place on both the weekly and monthly charts.

Young Gun Gaurav Sood may have left behind the career of becoming a dental surgeon, but his decision to pursue professional poker has undoubtedly paid off. Currently, the only player in the country with over ₹2 Crores in online winnings for 2020 (domestic sites), Sood retains his dominance on the yearly leaderboards for the ninth week straight!
