Runner-up to Koon is Singaporean Kenneth Kee Wee Kiang with $3,035,081. Like Koon, Kiang won a HK$1,000,000 Triton Poker SHR, but did so in Jeju last July, overcoming 60 entries for $2,867,009.

China's Xuan Tan is currently slotted 3rd on the list with $2,308,384, his one Short Deck Poker cash coming in a 2nd place finish to Koon. Right behind Tan is Phil Ivey with earnings of $2,271,472. Ivey bested 60 entries and won a HK$250,000 Triton tournament in May for $604,992, then followed that up a few days later with a 3rd place finish in a HK$1,000,000 event for $1,666,480.
