Calvin “Cal42688” Anderson is one of the better known online poker tournament players in the game (and for good reason) and 2013 could very well be the breakout year for Anderson considering he has had a fair amount of live tournament success in 2013, and just made poker history by joining online poker legend Shaun Deeb as the only poker players with four PokerStars SCOOP titles.
In 2013 Anderson has finished 5th in the 2013 Irish Poker Open Main Event, 10th in the PokerStars EPT Berlin Main Event, as well as cashing in the PokerStars PCA Main Event and the EPT Grand Final Main Event. Anderson’s biggest live tournament score came in 2011 when he finished 14th in the PokerStars PCA Main Event for $115k.
Anderson’s fourth SCOOP win came in Event #25-M, a $215 Fixed Limit Holdem 6-Max tournament. Cal Anderson took on another talented poker player who flies under the radar, Nick Abou Risk from Ireland, who finished as the runner-up in Anderson’s historic win:
- Calvin “cal42688″ Anderson (Mexico) $23,643.00
- Nick “nabourisk” Abou Risk (Ireland) $17,636.40
- b8chatz (United Kingdom) $13,099.50
- jonstarz (United Kingdom) $8,946.00
- nimzon (Finland) $6,390.00
- Truelove13 (Russia) $3,834.00
Here is a look at Anderson’s three other SCOOP titles:
- 2012 SCOOP -12-H: $2100 PL Omaha Heads-Up: $18,408
- 2011 SCOOP-27-H: $2100 Razz: $46,200
- 2010 SCOOP – 17-L: $15 PLO w/Rebuys: $26,940
Not to be outdone, Deeb is also making waves during the 2013 SCOOP series. Deeb won four titles last year on his way to the SCOOP leader-board title, and this year Deeb has already made multiple final tables, and is now sitting atop the SCOOP leader-board for the second straight year. Here is a look at the Overall Leaders on the SCOOP leader-board (PokerStars also runs individual leader-boards for the Low, Medium, and High buy-in events):
There is still a lot of poker left to be played before the 2013 SCOOP tournament series comes to a close, including the Main Events this Sunday, so there is still plenty of time for a leader-board shakeup, as well as more SCOOP history to possibly be made.
