Cole South loses big pot to luckexpress10

Big stacks are good

Dec. 22 in the world of online high-stakes poker produced a nice little back-and-forth heads-up No-Limit Texas Hold'em session between luckexpress10 and Cole South.

We don't know much about luckexpress10 other than the fact that he or she is considered a Redfish on the MarketPulse player report, which means he or she plays too many pots and is too passive post-flop. You'll find out momentarily why Cole South might disagree with our assessment.

Cole South, on the other hand, is hyperaggressive, and is one of the best-known online young guns in poker. He's an instructor at CardRunners along with other renowned young pros such as David "raptor" Benefield and Brian Hastings.

His reported bankroll is over $2 million and he appears on Season 5 of Poker After Dark.

During the short-handed session on Dec. 22 the players swapped wads of cash like they were sixth graders trading hockey cards. Plenty of the pots predictably went to Cole South; however, it was luckexpress10 who came out on top of the biggest.

On this little number luckexpress10 and his queens-up pocketed $190k of South's hard-earned instructional dollars:
