Anjema did however claim victory over Omar Mosaad at the NetSuite Open the year afterwards, which saw the Dutchman qualify for the 2011 PSA World Series Finals. 2012 saw Anjema reach the quarter-finals of the British Open and made it to the second round of the World Championship in 2013 before being knocked out by Nick Matthew.
