There is always a lot of talk about how the skills you learn on the poker table are transferable into many different areas of life. In the case of Jason Khan, a 30 year-old businessman from London who was recently crowned Champion Trader on our sister site InterTrader.com, the similarities couldn’t be any stronger. Jason recently managed to turn £10,000 into a whopping £350,017 in just ONE MONTH, beating 2,000 others to the title of Champion Trader.
“I am first and foremost a poker player and secondly a trader. While I was taking part in the Intertrader.com challenge it felt like I was playing poker. I had stack of money that needed to grow and it is the same concept – you manage risk in the same way. I was determined to become the Champion Trader on the leaderboard and there were times when I was cornered and just had to push – just like I would in a poker game,” he said.
“I play a lot of live and online poker but tend to stick to tournaments at the moment. With the bankroll I have earned on Intertader.com I now have a platform to play more tournaments. I’m also planning to have a good Christmas.”
News of Jason’s win was covered in London’s City AM. What’s next for Jason, a WPT title? “Now that would be great,” said Jason. “I am going to be taking my poker much more seriously from here on.” Sign up for Intertader.com now and get the special bonus.
