Triton Poker is proud to announce Jason Koon as brand ambassador for the Triton Super High Roller Series. Koon is one of the most respected and talented players in the game who spends his time competing in the highest stakes tournaments and cash games, globally.
In 2018, Koon won $12,478,538 in live tournaments including making four final tables at the Triton Super High Roller Series events in Montenegro and Jeju, including winning $3,579,836 after topping a 103-entrant field in the HKD 1,000,000 No-Limit Hold’em Short-Deck Ante-Only event in Montenegro, in only his second appearance in a Short-Deck tournament.
On his appointment, Koon said:
“Joining the Triton team was a no-brainer for me. I’ve always been a huge fan of their tournaments. The experience that players feel during a Triton event is second to none. I couldn’t be more excited. The Triton stops are pure poker. You play some of the biggest buy-ins in the world both in cash games and tournaments, and I love high stakes, high-pressure poker.”
Koon’s role will be to promote the Triton Poker brand and the Triton Super High Roller Series, globally, including raising awareness of poker in Asia throughout the high stakes community. Koon will compete in every single Triton stop of 2019, beginning in Jeju, South Korea: March 2 – 9.
“Jeju is a beautiful stop,” said Koon. “The Landing Resort and Casino is enormous with tons to offer everyone. It was one of my favourite stops in 2018.”
The 2019 Jeju schedule contains six events, one more than in 2018, culminating in an HKD 2,000,000 (USD 255,000) buy-in Triton Super High Roller Series Main Event. Jason Koon placed 5th in that 2018 event earning $1,079,443.
Triton Poker was founded in 2015 by the Malaysian businessman, philanthropist and poker lover, Richard Yong, who felt there was a gap in the market for an exclusive tournament series for affluent businesspeople and high-end professional poker players set in some of the most luxurious locations in the world all in the name of charity. Funds from Triton Poker events have helped charitable organisations such as Project Pink and the Red Cross.
Previous winners of Triton Poker events include Manig Loeser, Fedor Holz, Daniel ‘Jungleman’ Cates, Koray Aldemir, Stefan Schillhabel, John Juanda, Dan Colman, Jason Koon, Phil Ivey, and Mikita Badziakouski.
