The chip leaders have had their time in the sun (with more counts soon to come) but now it is time to shed some light on the “second wave.” This next group of players is playing at or above the chip average and are both attempting to bring this DSE III trophy back north of the US border.


Two-time WSOP bracelet winner Mark Radoja is playing close to 475,000 and came close to adding a third bracelet to his collection in the Tag Team event. Radoja is currently enjoying his first career DSE cash and has plenty of chips in play at his table with big stacks Michael Rocco and Chad Eveslage surrounding him.

Well-versed in both PLO and No Limit tournaments, Sam Chartier is putting his skills on display during Day 2. Chartier has quietly chipped up all day and is currently hovering around 725,000 as the dinner break closes in. Chartier’s table is one of the next to break and he will soon be a thorn in the side of a new set of opponents.
