On Tuesday, July 22, PocketFives revealed that Toronto's Shyam “g's zee” Srinivasan had become only the third player to ever reach $7.5 million in online tournament winnings, joining Sebastian “p0cket00” Sikorski and Chris “moorman1” Moorman who have already accomplished the feat.

Fellow Ontarian and current top-ranked online tournament player in the world, Sikorski accomplished the feat back in May, while UK's Moorman is online poker’s biggest tournament winner with more than $11 million in winnings. According to PocketFives, Srinivasan, who plays on PokerStars under the screen name “g’s zee” and Full Tilt Poker as "s_dot111," has won 158 online tournaments — including a July 20 Full Tilt Poker T-Rex win for $17,000 and the PokerStars Big $109 for $16,000 a week before that — and 461 top-three finishes.

Srinivasan’s largest online score came back in 2011 when he topped a field of 585 entrants to win the Full Tilt Poker $150 Rebuy for $72,750. Srinivasan is currently ranked 110th in the world on PocketFives, and 14th in Canada. Srinivasan, who ranked fourth in the world back in 2011, has cashed a total of 4,824 times in online tournaments for an average cash of $1,557.

In addition to his online dominance, Srinivasan has proven himself in the live realm by amassing $536,161 in tournament winnings with his largest cash of $328,020 coming from a sixth-place finish in the 2014 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $10,000 Main Event.
