Jason Koon won the inaugural PokerStars Championship Bahamas $100,000 Super High Roller, beating 54 players to take home $1,650,300 first place prize.
In doing so, Koon registered his biggest ever score since 2008. Post this win, Koon took his career earnings to $8,143,080.
Speaking about his latest win, Koon said:
“I think it’s really important to keep my eye on the rail, stay grounded and realize that I’m having a mini-Fedor moment and that’s awesome. But at the same time, there’s a bunch of guys that are more talented than I am so I need to work hard and stay on top of it.”
Seven players made it to the final table and after a series of eliminations it was left for Koon and Charles Carrel to fight it out for the title. The duo played out an exciting battle before Koon emerged victorious. The final hand of the game was played when both players checked a K-Q-2-8 board all the way through to the river, which was a J. Carrel’s bet was responded to by Koon by moving all-in. Carrel (k-7) made the call and Koon (Q-8) had enough to clinch the contest.
