Jason Koon has solidified his lead in the Triton Poker series, outpacing his closest rivals with a massive number of titles. The accomplished 38-year-old American clinched his tenth tour victory this weekend. On November 4, during the Triton Super High Roller Series in Monte Carlo, Koon emerged victorious in the $26,000 pot-limit Omaha turbo event. This latest win not only added $365,000 to his bankroll but also strengthened his status as the tour’s most prolific winner.
2023 has been an exceptional year for Koon, witnessing him take six Triton titles – more than any other player has ever managed within their entire career span. His record shines even brighter when compared to the achievements of poker legends like Phil Ivey and Danny Tang, who both have five Triton titles to their name. Interestingly, Tang secured his fifth just days before Koon’s most recent success.
Koon’s dominance is evident throughout the year’s Triton events. He has secured at least one title at each of the four festivals, with his victories spread out across London and Cyprus, where he bagged two titles at each location. With over $26.2 million amassed from 41 cashes in the Triton series alone, Koon’s Triton earnings now represent a significant portion of his impressive $52.2 million in career winnings.
The event that solidified Koon’s tenth title was a brisk affair, concluding within a single day. Hosted at the Salle des Etoiles in the Monte-Carlo Sporting complex, a stone’s throw from the scenic French Riviera, the tournament attracted 50 entries. These competitors contributed to a substantial prize pool of $1,250,000, which was distributed among the top nine finalists.
