Jason Koon has become a ten-time Triton champion after winning the $25k PLO Turbo event in Monte Carlo. The American has bagged six events at the Triton Super High roller Series this year alone and is significantly the most successful player in the series.




The event attracted 50 entries for a prize pool of $1,250,000. Not the biggest we see at a Triton series but still heavy enough up top.

Once the bubble had broken, Koon was still some way back from the leader but this is PLO where things happen quickly.

Eight-handed with 10-15 big blinds certainty did provide fast action and the final table began to dissolve at a rapid pace.

A few quick bustouts marked the start of Koon’s charge to the front, and before long Sam Greenwood was heading out in fourth place, quickly followed to the rail by Joao Vieira.

Finland’s Eelis Parssinen was the last man between Jason Koon and another record-breaking Triton title but even he couldn’t stop the irresistible force. Stacks were extremely short and the first time the chips went in during heads-up saw Koon crowned champion.
