Calvin Anderson Wins Record Eighth COOP Title

(pokernews.com)- The 2015 World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) on PokerStars — a 70-event poker festival featuring a mouth-watering $45 million in guaranteed prize pools — is wrapping up with 67 events in the books and the three other events beginning their second day.
A little more than a week ago, American poker refugee Shaun “shaundeeb” Deeb broke a record by winning his eighth “COOP” championship after shipping the WCOOP-44: $215 NL Hold’em [4-Max], $400K Guaranteed for $68,000. PokerStars COOP titles include wins in online poker’s three biggest festivals: WCOOP, the Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP), and Turbo Championship of Online Poker (TCOOP).

Deeb wasn’t able to hold the record to himself for long as Calvin “cal42688” Anderson tied it by winning his eighth COOP title after shipping the WCOOP-62: $320 PL Omaha H/L [6-Max], $100K Guaranteed for $36,020. Along with two WCOOP titles, Anderson has also won an astounding six different SCOOP events.
The record for the most WCOOP titles, which is with held by Dan “djk123” Kelly with four, appears to be safe this year. There are a number of players tied with three WCOOP titles, including Deeb,Anders “Donald” BergRyan “g0lfa” D’Angelo, and Mikal “mikal12345” Blomlie. However, unless one of them ships one of the remaining three events, they will have to wait until next year to chase down Kelly.
Meanwhile, the United Kingdom’s “easylimp” joined those with multiple COOP titles by winning his second after shipping the WCOOP-58: $530 NL Hold’em [Ultra-Deep], $150K Guaranteed for $81,598 as part of a three-way deal on the final table. Also scoring big in this tournament was Argentina’s “Stümpper88” snagging $69,896 for second place, and Ireland’s “whiteser” taking home $78,869 for third place.
