Anderson Wins PokerStars 2nd Chance, Eighth in Sunday 500
MTT master Calvin “cal42688” Anderson was on fire yesterday, making two final tables on PokerStars, and winning one of them outright.
First off Anderson outlasted over 700 players to get to the final table of the elite PokerStars Sunday 500.
Unfortunately for Anderson he ran out of steam just after making the final table and ended up finishing in eighth place for a relatively modest $8,169.
Anderson missed out on the really big cash as online player boahgerding went on to win the tournament for $64,768.
Unperturbed Anderson played the $175k GTD PokerStars Sunday 2nd Chance and proceeded to get by over 1,300 players to make his second final table of the day.
This time around Anderson made no mistake and ran over the table, eventually beating Joshk1981 heads-up to take the $47,120 first-place prize.

It was a busy day all around in the Sunday Majors as Brazilian Team PokerStars Pro Andre Akkari made the final table of the Sunday Million.
As usual the prizepool was enormous – this time tipping the scales at $1.56 million – and just by making the final table Akkari was guaranteed over $10k.
Eventually Akkari fell in sixth place to pick up $46,830. Tonaldinho11 went on to win the tournament for $234,150.
