IveyPoker.Com Rakes in the Top Ranked Pro of the Decade

November 23, 2012

IveyPoker.com has recruited Cole South into its ever expanding talent of online poker players. This online instructional site added the young talent after South demonstrated talent in the game. He now joins an exceptional crew of veterans like the winner of WSOP Main Event winner Greg Merson, Phil Ivey, and Patrik Antonius.

Since he started playing poker at the age of 24, South has had an illustrious career. Starting out with just $50 as his bankroll and playing in small stash tables, South was ever-determined. This determination handsomely paid off just one year later when he found himself with a $13,000 bankroll. This allowed him to move on to higher staked tables that saw him reach the $2 million mark within a single year. This was the first sign that South was not your normal poker player.

He had attained magic-like talent in the game. His hunger to win was insatiable. Playing with the granddaddies of the game like Tom Dwan, Viktor Blom, and Illari Sahamies, his prowess only continued to grow. He went on to beat some of them, taking his bankroll to over $3.5 million. However, the road was not flowered with roses. South has lost as much as he has made. He lost $1 million in a single day, and made an equivalent amount in a single day of play. There was a month that he lost $2.6 million, yet he never gave up, a defining character among the greats.

With such experience, South will prove to be an invaluable addition to the team over at IveyPoker.com. He has gone on to write a poker paperback Let There Be Range, which comes at an eye popping $1,850 sticker price. But it is well worth it. Adding to his entrepreneur endeavors, South co-owns Cardrunners.com.

Aligning himself with other IveyPoker.com pros, South is at the forefront of developing innovative social poker games aimed at offering poker training from the world’s top pros.
