Jason Koon to lead new GGPoker Anti-Cheating Commission
After the birth of his son, the popular Canadian poker pro Jason Koon began to have a streak of positive events. At first, he joined the GGPoker team as an ambassador.
In the next few days after this event, the Canadian high roller managed to win his first World Series of Poker bracelet in a $25 000 heads-up tournament. In addition to the trophy, Jason then earned $244 000.
The poker player continued to delight his fans with big victories in live poker series, but at the same time he did not forget about his duties as an ambassador of the largest poker network.
First of all, Jason Koon is responsible for security in the GGPoker team, namely, to look for bots, to help ban players who use all sorts of prohibited software, and to monitor compliance with the rules of fair play among poker players.

It seems that Koon is doing an excellent job with the tasks. The poker player initiated the creation of a special commission for fair play (Poker Integrity Council). Its goal will be to protect the poker ecology from various scams.
Members of the commission will conduct thorough investigations regarding players who, in the opinion of the poker community, are playing a dishonest game. Such well-known players as Fedor Holz, Nick Petrangelo, Andrew Lichtenberger and Seth Davis joined the commission.
They will conduct analytics on accounts that have received warnings or bans for violating fair play rules. Moreover, those players who fall into the "black list" will not be able to participate in major live tournament series. Numerous representatives of major poker festivals have already agreed to participate in this initiative: Super High Roller Bowl, Poker Masters, High Stakes Poker, Triton Poker, Battle of Malta, World Poker Tour, Asian Poker Tour and many others.
If any of the players are caught cheating and violating the general rules of fair play, they will be banned from participating in the events of the aforementioned series.
Poker Integrity Council will significantly complicate the life of those players who want "easy money" and deliberately destroy the poker ecology.
