It appears noted online player Cole South has become one of the first big name pros to move abroad to play on Full Tilt Poker.

South, who is originally from Williamsburg, Virginia, popped up on the high stakes charts last night with his location now set to Canada. 

The former CardRunners instructor didn’t show any signs of rust as he fired off 885 hands of $200/$400 Pot-Limit Omaha against Esvedra.

South finished with $101k, which already makes a move to Canada for online poker seem financially viable. South will need more sessions to go that way, however, as he’s still down nearly $600k in 2011.

Meanwhile railbirds are starting to buzz on the possible identity of Esvedra who also has his location set to Canada. 

Esvedra lost $213k last night, thanks in large part to South, and has lost over $654k this year. He is rumored to be down more than $2 million on Full Tilt. Poker fans are wondering how much more damage his bankroll can possibly take. 

Meanwhile NoPasaran was technically the biggest winner on Full Tilt, taking down a total of $196k. NoPasaran has been just fine since U.S. players were shut out of the site and is currently up $1.5 million.

Other big winners included Gus Hansen (+$52k), IReadYrSoul (+$50k) and ronnyr37617 (+$38k).

Even Viktor “Isildur1” Blom eked out another small win on PokerStars with $19k in profit. Despite the fact it was a relatively small win, the profit helped push Blom well into the black for the first time in months.

Although Esvedra was the biggest loser last night, he wasn’t the only player to drop over $100k. Patrik Antonius booked a rare loss, dumping a total of $122k onto the online poker tables.

Some of the other players to plant themselves firmly in the loss column included DrugsOrMe (-$53k), SanderB12 (-$34k), dilling89 (-$33k) and gavz101 (-$19k).
