Koon could be considered the King of Triton
Jason Koon was named Ivan Leow Player of the Year in June by the Triton Poker Super High Roller Series. He won his seventh title in May at the $100,000 Triton Poker Super High Roller Main Event for $2.4 million and was sixth in the $20,000 No-Limit Hold ’em 7-handed event a few weeks ago.
Koon started his journey to repeat as Player Of The Year after winning the Triton Poker Super High Roller $63,600 No-Limit Hold ’em 7-Max in London for the eighth time, winning $1.57 million. Leow co-founded the Triton Poker Super High Roller Series and passed away unexpectedly at the age of 41 last September.
Koon has won half of his eight titles just in 2023. Mikita Badziakouski is second with four Triton Poker Super High Roller titles. Koon also won $1.6 million against Phil Hellmuth on the High Stakes Duel poker live stream.
The 7-Max event had 67 entrants and 37 reentries for a total prize pool of $6.24 million. 2022 WSOP Main Event winner Espen Jorstad finished 7th for $277,500, and Phil Ivey finished one place ahead to take home $363,000.
Rodrigo Selouan took $1.06 million as runner-up, his biggest career cash coming almost a year and a half after his previous top finish of first place in the €25,000 high roller event at EPT Prague for €318,370 ($347,839).
Justin Saliba went over $3 million in lifetime cashes after his $690,000 win. He won a WSOP bracelet at the $10,000 online high roller event in 2022.
Matthias Eibinger finished fifth, surpassing the $13 million mark in lifetime cashes at the event. He’s cashed four times and has made two final tables since May at Triton Poker Super High Roller events.
