P5s Scouting Report
One of Calvin Anderson's largest online tournament cashes to date came courtesy of a final table appearance in the 2010 PokerStars SCOOP-02-H ($2,000+100 NLHE Two-Day) for $86,200. His other key scores include 2nd and 3rd place finishes in the Full Tilt Poker $200k Guarantee ($150+13 NLHE with rebuys) for $45,200 and $38,100. Cal debuted in the PocketFives Top 100 Rankings in September '10.
In August 2012, Anderson was on fire. In a one-week span, he won the PokerStars Sunday Second Chance for $45,000 and the Sunday Warm-Up for $83,000. In March 2011, he won the Full Tilt Poker $1.5M Guaranteed and officially walked away with a healthy $303,000 payday. He defeated over 4,200 players in that tournament and edged out fellow P5er "ASong" heads-up.
In May 2013, Anderson fell heads-up to fellow PocketFiver "Amtozza" in the PokerStars Sunday $100 Rebuy, but still cashed for $53,000. The same month, Anderson became just the second player ever to record four SCOOP titles after winning a $215 Six-Handed Limit Hold'em tournament. He started off 2014 by chopping the Full Tilt $250K for $44,000 with fellow P5er "padjes". In February 2014, he took third in the 888 Whale and earned $26,000. Five months later, Anderson won the PokerStars Sunday $100R outright for $37,000. In October 2014, Anderson won the 888 Sunday Challenge outright for $21,000, defeating a field of almost 800 entrants.
On the first weekend of 2015, cal42688 took second in the 888 Mega Deep, cashing for $21,000 from a field of 777 entrants. One week later, he won the Full Tilt Sunday Major for another $38.000. Had even more success in the Mega Deep in March 2015, when he took third place in it for $16,000 from a field of almost 1,000.
Anderson won a WSOP bracelet in a $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low 8-or Better tournament during the 2014 World Series of Poker, banking $190,000 in the process.
