Jason Koon is one of the most successful high-stakes players in the world, excelling at both tournaments and cash games. In live tournaments, he has over $30,000,000 in earnings, and he can often be found sitting in the biggest cash games in the world. All that being said, this episode is about something different. Recently, Jason posted an incredibly brave series of tweets detailing his journey to overcome an abusive childhood, and sharing some of the wisdom he learned along the way. Poker is a highly emotional game, one that can easily trigger emotions caused by events in your past. Part of becoming the best player you can be, and bringing your A-Game each session, is identifying those emotional triggers and taking steps to manage them or eliminate them altogether. So, we asked Jason if he would come on to discuss his story in more depth, and what resulted was an incredibly open and deep discussion that could help a lot of people struggling with issues similar to what Jason has dealt with in the past.
