I understand the confusion... "anyone" could technically mean that if you find another player with less keepers than you, then you have "more keepers than anyone." However, in basically all contexts of English speaking, "I have more than anyone" means "I have the most." Just like if someone said "I am better than anyone" you would think they were saying "I am the best," not "There is someone out there whom I am better than."

Interestingly enough, if it said "if anyone else has fewer keepers than you," instead of "if you have more keepers than anyone else," then it would mean the other thing.

How about "more/fewer than each other player"? Each implies that you check everyone but don't add the number.
