Another high-profile addition to the GGPoker team is professional poker player from the USA Jason Kuhn. In today’s article, we will tell you about who he is and what he is going to do under the supervision of GG.
A child from a poor family without a father
Jason Kuhn (Jason Koon) was born in 1985 and lived in a complete family until the age of 8, until his father left. Jason’s relationship with him was bad – the child was beaten and humiliated.
I did a lot of work to forgive him, and now I have no hatred in my heart. In the end, this experience brought me to where I am now. So, to some extent, anger can be a great motivator.
Mom and son moved from Virginia to Tennessee and lived in a small house by the river. They had no money, so Jason couldn’t afford college. Therefore, being physically developed, he decided to build a career in baseball, or take up running professionally. Everything was going well until he got a hip injury before the first competition in his life.
Then a friend showed Coon online poker, and today he has been a professional for over 10 years. Hiro is in the top 10 of the All-Time Money List (the number of prize money in offline tournaments) with a result of $ 32.6M. His biggest achievement is 1st in the HK $ 1M Short Deck High Roller at the Triton Poker Series in Montenegro. The prize money was $ 3.6M.
Jason lives in Canada, is married and became a father at the end of September.
The role of an ambassador at GGPoker
The team of professionals at GGPoker is replenished approximately once a quarter. People of all caliber are invited – from streamers like Fernando “JNandez” Habegger to “top division” ambassadors like Daniel Negreanu, Fedor Holz, Dan Bilzerian and Bertrand Grospellier. Jason Kuhn will join the list of the latter.
It is worth recalling that before that, Jason represented the interests of partypoker for about three years. Mediaism is clearly not his forte, since few people know what he was doing, except how he wore a patch.
The news of Jason’s new sponsor hit the Rio casino at the WSOP. Daniel Negreanu personally congratulated him.
In addition, GGPoker released a short video presentation:

My main task at GGPoker is to look for those who are playing dishonestly or using RTA (Real Time Decision Assistance Programs). I will defend all levels of the game, right up to the highest limits.
Jason considers himself to be a competent poker security expert. For the past 6 years, he said, he has “studied in depth artificial intelligence and fraudulent tools that people are developing.” Since they overlap so strongly with training programs, Jason said that he understands very well how they work.
There is hardly a single person in the poker community with a negative opinion of Jason Kuhn – everyone thinks he is a great guy. But, as the saying goes, “a good person is not a profession,” so it will be possible to truly assess the productivity of Jason’s work in a few months, at least after the conclusion of the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas.
