Mark “Poker Ho” Kroon
One of the most colorful characters in poker is none other than Mark “Poker-Ho” Kroon. With over $2 M in poker earnings both live and online, Mark represents the “old school” warriors of online poker that are now tearing up the live poker scene. With a WSOP ring in 2011, a top ten finish in the WSOP Circuit POY standings that same year, and the only player ever to hold the chip lead in the WSOP Main Event for Day 1 and Day 2 in 2013, Mark has transformed his 2005 online player of the year reputation into that of one of the most dangerous live players in the world. Hailing from Madison, this long time close friend of Phil Hellmuth and former Poker Brat Radio show host believes he is in the prime of his poker career and is only getting started.
