Jason Koon Bubbles the 2016 Aussie Millions Poker Championship $100,000 Challenge

Jason Koon

Ben Tollerene opened for 45,000 from middle position with {K-Clubs}{J-Diamonds} and his next door neighbor Connor Drinan in the hijack flatted with {A-Clubs}{A-Spades}.

Drinan's little plan worked; he must had hoped for one of the shorter stacks behind him to squeeze all in, and that was exactly what happened. Jason Koon in the cutoff found a real big hand with {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds} and shoved his last 246,000 in.

The button, both blinds and initial raiser Ben Tollerene all folded but, as one might expect, it was Connor Drinan with the quick call.

It was an unfair match up to begin with and it never got exciting. The {9-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}{9-Clubs} flop left Koon nothing but some runner runner possibilities to hope for, but it was already all over by the time the {8-Hearts} hit the turn. As the dealer was completing the board with the {J-Spades}, Koon was already wishing the remaining 6 players good luck in their quest for Aussie Millions gold.

Jason Koon out in 7th place, the remaining 6 players are in the money and guaranteed AU$281,260.
