Cole South is Online Poker’s Biggest Winner This Year

by Poker Team

No one can dispute the fact that Cole South is on a major heater, the kind most players can only dream about. The CardRunners pro has been absolutely dominating the nosebleed games at Full Tilt Poker since 2010 started and there are no signs that he will be letting up anytime soon.

Currently, South is online poker’s biggest winner on the year as he has profited over $2.7 million since January 1st. Whether the game is shorthanded 6-max or heads up, South has taken and dispatched all comers and he has done so against the games best players. Yesterday was no exception as he added $558,000 to his bankroll, thanks in large part to getting the best of Tom “durrrr” Dwan and Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies. South is not solely a big stakes player however, he also plays in some smaller games as well, where he generally crushes the opposition at a high win rate.

This time around the day started off shaky as he quickly lost a quarter million to Patrik Antonius and Dwan playing $300/$600 Pot Limit Omaha. He quickly rebounded however, as he took on Dwan heads up and took the pro for over $300K in under 1000 hands played. Almost as quickly, he lost $250K back to Antonius before taking on Ziigmund and a host of others in a six-max PLO session. He booked a solid $425K in winnings, fueled by a couple of $250K pot he took down.

Meanwhile, Antonius’ score against South propelled him even closer to the break even mark for the year. At some point variance will undoubtedly catch up with South, though opponents should proceed with caution against him until further notice.
