Koon will join other GGTeam ambassadors including Daniel Negreanu, Bertrand Grospellier, Dan Bilzerian and Fedor Holz in representing GGPoker live and online.
Koon’s global ambassador focus will be on strengthening the poker room’s security and game integrity efforts, as well as acting as an advocate for high roller, VIP and high-volume players.
“I’m really excited to join GGPoker, particularly so soon after they’ve taken a leading role in the poker world,” Koon said. “I’m also thrilled to be in a position to help with game security and player advocacy, making GGPoker an even better place to play our favourite game.”
John Scanlon, director of sponsorships and live events at GGPoker added, “At GGPoker, we view ambassadors as part of our overall team. We want them as bought into keeping GGPoker the No.1 site in the world as we are.
“Jason’s reputation and how he handles himself personally and professionally makes him an ideal global ambassador. Having a player of his calibre providing advice and direction and representing the most committed segment of our player community, is invaluable for us.”
