The 2022 Poker Masters high roller series is now officially in the books. The high-stakes tournament festival that was held in the PokerGO studio at ARIA Resort & Casino reached its climax on Monday, Oct. 3 with the conclusion of the $50,000 buy-in no-limit hold’em event. World Series of Poker bracelet winner Jason Koon emerged victorious from a stacked final table to capture the final title of the series. The 37-year-old poker pro based out of Las Vegas secured $666,000 as the champion.
This win saw Koon increase his lifetime tournament earnings to more than $41.4 million in the process. He now sits in seventh place on poker’s all-time money list.
“I haven’t played many tournaments, but I guess the ones I have played have gone pretty good,” Koon told PokerGO commentator Jeff Platt after the win. “I’ve played a lot less and hung out with my family, but when I’ve come to play I’ve really been focused and I feel like I’ve played some of my best poker this year.”
Koon also took home 400 PokerGO Tour points for the win, bringing his total to 449 for the series when combined with the 49 points he earned for a sixth-place showing in event no. 9. This resulted in Koon finishing in second place in the race for the Poker Masters Purple Jacket. The player of the series $50,000 and the jacket were ultimately awarded to Sean Winter, who secured a first and a second-place finish in two of the $25,000 buy-in high rollers during the final days of the series. Koon now sits in third place in the year-long PGT points race after his strong showing at the Poker Masters.
