One of the more popular and successful online poker players, Cole South, walked away with $171,000 this weekend.

From HighStakesDB.com:

A very fortunate pot for Cole South here, and one where it seems he was a bit overly optimistic about his chances on the turn. His call on the flop with an overpair and a gut shot draw is fairly automatic, but the call on the turn I find a bit dubious. Possibly he was hoping for a chance to take the pot away on the river if he didn’t hit his hand. But even if Hansen has been double barreling with nothing, he is likely to fire the last bullet on the river and then South will not be able to make a call. Regardless of the merits of his play, Cole South was rewarded when his 1 in 19 shot came through with the nine of clubs on the river, so I guess all is well that ends well. Gus Hansen might see it differently, though.

South is a 20-year-old from Williamsburg, Virginia. Cole is involved with Cardrunners.com and has been playing high stakes poker online since 2005.
