In an interview, Koon said that he loves to come to such tournaments. This is excitement, adrenaline, and great pleasure. At the same time, the player admitted that he intends to constantly take part in WSOP tournaments.
Recall that this event was heads-up, so each player had to compete with each other, meeting face to face. As a result, the winner managed to beat Chris Brewer, then Nikolai Morris, Johannes Becker, Jake Daniels, and Henri Puustinen. And in the final tournament, he met with Sabo.
Everyone knew that the final would be hot, as professional players – Kun and Sabo would meet face to face. These two players took the lead several times in the final part of the tournament, but the leadership remained with Koon. In the final bout, both pros pushed all-in, Sabo had K-9 diamonds, and Kun had a J-7 offsuit.
The flop came J-6-5 with 8 diamonds on the turn and six hearts on the river. But this was not enough for Sabo, so he took second place, sending Kun straight to the first place, where his cherished gold bracelet was already waiting for him.
