My friend and today's podcast guest Jason Koon is a professional poker player. As of August 2021, he is the 10th highest earner in history, with nearly $32,000,000 in winnings. 

Originally from West Virginia, Jason was raised outdoors, spending much of his childhood fishing, hunting, and playing sports. Jason attended West Virginia Wesleyan College on a track scholarship where he competed as a sprinter. He would go on to graduate with a finance undergraduate degree, as well as an M.B.A.

Jason found poker in college after suffering a severe hip injury. Within months he was winning money playing on the internet. By the time Jason finished university, he was winning at high-stakes poker games on the internet. After taking a finance job in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Jason almost immediately quit and decided to give playing poker for a living a chance.

Jason is married to his wife Bianca and has a newborn son, Calum. They reside in Las Vegas, NV.
