Cole South Joins

Cole South Joins IveyPoker.comInstructional site just announced that top pro Cole South had joined its team of professionals, which also includes Phil Ivey, Patrik Antonius, Jennifer Harman, and 2012 WSOP Main Event winner Greg Merson.
The 24 year-old first started playing online poker back in 2005, having depositing $50 into his account and hitting the small stakes cash tables. A year later he had run his bankroll up to $13,000 and then after moving onto the  high stakes online games, South’s bankroll exceeded $2 million by the end of the following year.
Not surprisingly, Cole South is well experienced in the swings associated with playing against high stakes players, such as Tom Dwan, Illari Sahamies and Viktor Blom. The former Full Tilt Poker Red Pro, for instance, won more than $3.5 million in February, 2010, before losing $2.6 million the following month. In addition, South has won $1.1 million in a single day’s play, only to later lose $1million over a similar amount of time.
Interestingly, the cash game specialist doesn’t tend to play tournaments, and a quick glance at his live results show that he has cashed in just two live events. However, both those events were the WSOP Main Event, where in 2009 he finished 162nd out of 6,494 entries for $40,288, and in 2010 in 365th out of 7,319 players for $36,463.
Cole South will undoubtedly prove a valuable addition to, as he is not only a talented player but also has a deep knowledge of the game. His past entrepreneurial endeavors include being co-owner of, as well as being the author of the excellent NL cash game poker book “Let There Be Range,” albeit with a $1,850 price tag.
As Cole South lines-up with the other pros at, the site has already begun accepting sign-ups and recently announced it was “in the final stages of developing an innovative social poker game that also provides poker training content from some of the world’s top pros.”
