4/29/10 – One of the owners of the online poker coaching site CardRunners, Cole South, has announced that he is to depart the company due to pressure of too many commitments. It is not known whether South was bought out by his partners.
South, who famously (and allegedly with a little help from his friends) took the mysterious Swedish online high stakes player Isildur1 down for over $4 million in one Full Tilt nosebleed session, was part owner, instructor and blogger on the site.
This week South blogged: "In the past year I have at the same time been a full time student, a professional poker player, and an owner/instructor of a poker training site, and I've found myself spread too thin. Leaving Cardrunners has been an incredibly tough decision for me, but it will allow me to focus on playing poker and completing my degree.”
