Cole South has become one of the most dedicated and consistent high stakes
, online poker players
in the world. Cole's tremendous success has enabled the CardRunners instructor to take three years off from college to travel the world, before returning to Georgetown to major in economics.
After losing his beer money in a poker game
with friends his freshman year, Cole decided to educate himself on the game by checking out some poker strategy
books from the library. As his game improved, Cole decided to deposit $50 at an online poker room
, but without any understanding of bankroll management he soon busted.
Making a New Year's resolution to assiduously study and excel at Limit Hold'em, Cole deposited $200 and started at $0.50/$1 playing one table at a time. Cole began multi-tabling by adding a table every few days, and soon accumulated the bankroll he required to move up to $1/$2 Limit Hold'em. Continuing in this fashion, by April, Cole was ready to focus his attention to conquering No Limit Hold'em. Ardently sticking to his strict bankroll schedule, and six-max tables, Cole South methodically worked his way up into the highest stakes of online poker.
Since then, Cole South has expanded his game selection to include Pot Limit Omaha and mixed games. Formerly known as 'MUCKEMSAYUHH', Cole became a Full Tilt Pro in 2008, and has since gone by his real name. His playing style has been described as hyper-loose and aggressive, earning South a $2 million online poker
profit in 2009. Cashing once in the WSOP No Limit Hold'em Championship in 2009, Cole South intends to make more appearances in WSOP events, though he still considers himself to be a “cash game player at heart.”
