Jason Koon: Best Short-Deck Tournament Poker Player in the World?!
The Triton High Roller Series wrapped up last week in Jeju, South Korea. Highlights from the series included Jason Koon winning the short-deck ante-only tournament for $2,840,945. This win brings his total short-deck tournament winnings to just over $6.3 million.
Short-deck poker is a variant played with 36 cards instead of the regular 52. The 2's, 3', 4's, and 5's are taken out of the deck, so the lowest card in play is a 6.
