Young Gun Gaurav Sood has built quite a legacy for himself, given his MTT dominance these last two years. He had topped the 2020 leaderboard standings and looks well on track to repeating the feat again this year as he completes 16 consecutive weeks at the top of the annual charts today. While the #2 ranked Manish Lakhotia had closed in considerably in late October, Sood`s stupendous run earlier this month catapulted him ahead by a significant margin! A relatively quiet week of online MTT action saw Sood adding a little over ₹2 Lakhs. Still, with an over ₹20 Lakhs lead over Lakhotia, he is the on-money favorite to end the year in the #1 position.

The top order of the annual leaderboard maintains the status quo, with PokerGuru Ambassador Laksh Pal Singh sitting at the #3 position.

Shagun Jain powered his way to the top of the monthly standings on the back of his breakout Sunday run, pushing Gaurav Sood down to #2 in the November standings. The DOPT Main Event champion Tarun Goyal takes the #3 position.

Tarun Goyal`s DOPT Main Event score has placed him at the top of the weekly charts, with the monthly leaderboard topper Shagun Jain taking second place. This week`s The Prestige and The Elite champion Akhilesh Chauhan rounds out the top three names on the weekly standings.
