The top order of the yearly charts maintained the status quo for another week, even as Young Gun Gaurav Sood completed his 10th consecutive week as the winningest player of the year – a title he won convincingly last year as well. It`s been almost two weeks since Sood has been MIA from the action (he`s been busy at EPT Sochi). Despite the absence, Sood`s comfortable lead over the others has kept him isolated from any immediate competition. With 3.62 Crores in annual earnings, he is almost 12.70 Lakhs ahead of the #2 ranked Manish Lakhotia and over 2.5X that of PokerGuru Ambassador Laksh Pal Singh in #3. However, if any of these two were to make a Sunday run, he could be dethroned.

Since we’ve only just crossed the first week of October, the monthly and weekly rankings essentially reflect the same results. Hence, we won’t be covering the October rankings separately.

Coming to the weekly trailblazers, Siddhanth Kripalani stole the thunder, winning three flagship titles and over 19 Lakhs cumulatively. He started the week with a bang by taking down PokerBaazi`s BSS SuperStack on Sunday. Kripalani captured two more titles, shipping The Summit on Thursday and The Elite on Friday, his breakout week pushing him to #9 in the annual leaderboard standings.

Just around the time Kripalani was taking down the BSS SuperStack title, Dhinesh Kumar took second place in Spartan Poker`s The Millionaire, scoring the bulk of the 15.55 Lakhs he accumulated through the week.

Harshit Sanghi, who won his second consecutive The Big Deal title on Thursday for ₹10 Lakhs, rounds out the top three on the weekly rankings. Sanghi closed out the week with ₹11.18 Lakhs in cumulative earnings (₹9.71 Lakhs in net profits).

1. Gaurav Sood

Yearly Cashes – 3,61,60,337

Yearly Profit – 1,75,84,833

Yearly Leaderboard Points – 51,367

Gaurav Sood has been prominently missing in action for almost two weeks now as the Young Gun is busy at EPT Sochi. Nevertheless, the former dentist was seen running deep in the Sunday Superstack, where he placed seventh for 1.28 Lakhs. Sood can afford a break – he is still the undisputed annual leaderboard topper with 3.62 Crore in annual winnings and 1.76 Crore in corresponding profits.

2. Manish Lakhotia

Yearly Cashes – 3,48,91,563

Yearly Profit – 95,22,225

Yearly Leaderboard Points – 64,505

Manish Lakhotia was another leaderboard topper who went through a relatively slow week. The reclusive MTT pro from Siliguri added a modest 1.77 Lakhs this week and trails Gaurav Sood by 12.70 Lakhs.

With Sood occupied with his travels and playing live tournaments at EPT Sochi, this presents an excellent opportunity for Lakhotia to reclaim the #1 spot – but he will need to book a massive Sunday score to get close.
