Koon, who is just 36 years of age, has a little over $32.5 million in total lifetime tournament cashes, which puts him at 10th on the all-time money list.

Koon has posted eight $1,000,000+ cashes over the course of his career, with his largest cash coming in a 2018 Triton Poker Short Deck event, which he ended up taking down for over $3.5 million.


As mentioned, Koon is very well-respected in the poker world, and has been a fierce advocate for fairness in poker and the eradication of cheating tools.

Koon said that GGPoker's passion for creating an equal playing field was one of the reasons why he signed with the site.
