He began playing poker in 2006 while at university, and recorded his first WSOP cash in 2009. Koon would cash regularly in Las Vegas during the 2000s, before finishing runner-up in his first WSOP event in 2012 in the $3,000 No Limit Hold'em/Pot Limit Omaha - Heads-Up.

However, the breakout result came in 2016 when he won the SHRPO Championship for $1,000,000. Less than six months later, Koon had a second seven-figure score with victory in the PokerStars Championship Super High Roller for $1,650,300.

In November 2023, Koon was one of the first sixteen contestants on GGPoker's reality-TV show Game of Gold.
