Biography

Jason Koon is an American poker player. As of October 2021, he is ninth on the all-time money list.

The GGPoker Ambassador won his first WSOP bracelet in 2021, winning the prestigious $25K Heads-Up Championship for $243,981.

"It’s one of those things when you’re on an airplane and a person is like, ‘Do you have a bracelet?’ I’m just like, ‘Nope.’ At least I can finally say yes to that," he told PokerNews. "I love coming here. I think I’ll play poker forever, and when it’s all said and done I think it’s inevitable I’ll have several of them."

Biography

Koon was born in August, 1985 and studied for a Masters in Business Administration and Finance at West Virginia Wesleyan College in Buckhannon.

He began playing poker in 2006 while at university, and recorded his first WSOP cash in 2009. Koon would cash regularly in Las Vegas during the 2000s, before finishing runner-up in his first WSOP event in 2012 in the $3,000 No Limit Hold'em/Pot Limit Omaha - Heads-Up.

However, the breakout result came in 2016 when he won the SHRPO Championship for $1,000,000. Less than six months later, Koon had a second seven-figure score with victory in the PokerStars Championship Super High Roller for $1,650,300.

Koon on the Triton Poker Super High Roller Series

Koon has played on the Triton Poker Super High Roller Series since 2018. In that year, he won the HK$ 1000,000 No Limit Hold'em - Short Deck in Montenegro for $3,579,836. That remains the biggest cash of his career.

The American has also cashed at Triton events in London, England and Jeju, South Korea.
