Jason Koon, one of the world’s most successful poker players, has joined the GGPoker team as its latest Global Ambassador. Coming from West Virginia, USA, Koon is 10th on the all-time money list, with over $32 million in live tournament cashes, including multiple highroller tournament victories. He will join other GGTeam Global Ambassadors, including Daniel Negreanu, Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier, Dan Bilzerian and Fedor Holz, in representing GGPoker live and online.
Koon will act in a special capacity at GGPoker. The Global Ambassador’s focus will be on strengthening the poker room’s security and game integrity efforts, as well as acting as an advocate for highroller, VIP and high-volume players. GGPoker views this as essential in ensuring that VIP needs are given due consideration at all times by the brand’s management.
“I’m really excited to join GGPoker, particularly so soon after they’ve taken a leading role in the poker world. I’m also thrilled to be in a position to help with game security and player advocacy, making GGPoker an even better place to play our favourite game,” said Koon.
John Scanlon, Director of Sponsorships and Live Events at GGPoker added, “At GGPoker, we view ambassadors as part of our overall team. We want them as bought into keeping GGPoker the #1 site in the world as we are. Jason’s reputation and how he handles himself personally and professionally makes him an ideal Global Ambassador. Having a player of his calibre providing advice and direction, and representing the most committed segment of our player community, is invaluable for us.”
