Less than a week after abruptly departing from his role as a brand ambassador for GGPoker, Jason Koon has been announced as the latest addition to Poker Royalty’s elite lineup of agency-represented poker players.

Koon currently ranks as the third-highest player on The Hendon Mob’s all-time money list with more than $55.7 million in career cashes. Koon has also carptured at least 28 recorded poker titles, including a record 10 Triton Poker Series events and a WSOP bracelet event.

“We are excited to be working with Jason, who is undoubtedly one of the greatest poker players today,” said Brian Balsbaugh, Founder and CEO of Poker Royalty. “Jason’s enormous poker talent, impeccable reputation, and dedication to the community make him a fantastic poker ambassador.”

Koon joins 12 other Poker Royalty-represented pros

A native of Virginia who took to online poker in college after being sidelined by an injury, then expanded that success to live play, Koon has rarely looked back in his climb to the top of the game. He joins an impressive lineup of poker elites being represented by Poker Royalty, including Phil Hellmuth, Daniel Negreanu, Antonio Esfandiari, Brian Rast, Daniel Weinman, Patrik Antonius, David Williams, Scotty Nguyen, Josh Ariah, Jeremy Becker, Matt “CasinoKing” Gothard, and the estate of the late Doyle Brunson.

“I’m thrilled to join the ranks at Poker Royalty and work alongside some of the greatest in the game,” Koon said. “Their reputation, contacts, and industry knowledge make them the best fit for me as I continue my professional career.”
