Posted by Steve Ruddock on Apr 29, 2010 Posted in Poker Player News | No Comments »

Cardrunners is back in the headlines once again, but this time it’s for more benign reasons. Cole ‘CTS’ South, one of the top instructors on the #1 online poker training site has announced that he is resigning as both an instructor and part owner of Cardrunners.

South made the announcement on his blog citing too many projects, and too little time: “I have had an amazing experience as a lead instructor with Cardrunners over the past few years, but today I am announcing my departure from the company. At the end of April I will be moving on both as an instructor and as an owner of the business.

This decision has more to do with myself than Cardrunners. 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.”

South has been one of the top online poker performers over the years and was co-author of the $1,850 E-Book, Let There be Range.

The decision to part ways with Cardrunners comes on the heels of numerous scandals involving the site including Brian Townsend data-mining vs. Isildur1; Jason Ho’s misrepresentation of his skills; and most notably Nick “StoxTrader” Grudzien’s admission of multi-accounting along with allegations that he colluded at the online poker tables.
