Jason Koon

Jason Koon is a West Virginia-based professional poker player with a long list of poker achievements to flaunt on his poker resume. But poker was not always on the cards for this pro. He attended Lewis County High School in 2003 and received his Master’s in Business Administration and Finance from the college. Following an injury and the will to avoid boredom, his roommate introduced him to the game, and it was there that Koon realised he could make money by playing poker. 

Eventually, he started playing poker online in 2006 on sites like PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker. He began his live poker journey two years later in 2008. He has one World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet and ranks 5th on Hendon Mob’s All-Time Money List.

Later, he took down the 1M Short Deck Ante Only event and pocketed $3,579,836, which remains to be his best live cash to date. With that, Koon had proved that he and Triton Poker would go a long way together. 

He recorded two final table cashes at Triton Poker Jeju 2018 edition later that year.
