Jason Koon Loses $2M Poker Cash Game Pot

Kane Kalas Comes Out On The Winning End

One of the priciest poker pots ever caught on camera occurred last week in the €1,000,000 buy-in “Triton Cash Game” held in Montenegro as part of a high roller tournament series.

The €2,000-€4,000 no-limit hold’em game featured poker legends such as Phil Ivey, Patrik Antonious and Tom Dwan, but it was lesser known, but still world-class, poker pros Jason Koon and Kane Kalas who found themselves in the largest confrontation of the cash game.

Koon held AHeart SuitQClub Suit against Kalas’ pocket tens in the epic hand, as shown above. There was heavy betting all the way to the river, with Koon moving in at the very end.

Koon’s ill-timed river bet resulted in Kalas scooping a pot worth about $2.1 million USD. “Feels awesome when the poker gods are on your side,” Kalas said after the hand.

He later said on Twitter that he cashed out of the game up about €500,000, so he did end up giving back some of his winnings from the monster pot against Koon.

Amazingly, Koon was able to win a roughly $1.7 million chip pot later in the session to basically erase his losses. He also won $3.5 million in a tournament at the Triton Super High Roller Series.

CASH POKER CAN BE KIND TO YOU UNTIL YOU LOOSE YOUR LAST HAND AND GO BROKE.
