Koon In 2018
Noticing Jason Koon's 2018 poker journey, one can easily make out that Koon is using all his talent to rope in the maximum possible. From the beginning of the year, he first took down the PCA High Roller in the Bahamas for $4,21,080. Soon after, he secured the runner-up spot in the US Poker Open $25k event for $2,69,500. His spectacular wins at the Super High Roller Bowl China and the partypokerMILLIONS Grand Final in Barcelona prepped him for the Triton Series in Montenegro.
Even the novel intricacies of Short Deck poker couldn’t halt Koon’s rise and rise, a 4th spot worth $1,69,936 in the opening tournament followed by yet another victory in the series finale, a monster $35,79,836 ahead of Phil Ivey.
Jason Koon is just 3 million or so behind the likes of celebrated players like Isaac Haxton and Jason Mercier in the all-time money list. Now at this level, Koon might very easily cross the $20million milestone and also crack the top 20 this weekend.
