Raoul Cheong has taken over the chip-lead of the entire tournament with more than a level left to play in Day 1D. He currently has ~630k, more than 150 big blinds heading into the last round. Cheong has ~$82k in live earnings which was mostly accumulated with his 6th place finish in the Borgata Kickoff Event in September 2015. That score earned him $70,853, $65k more than his next best score. Just over two years later, he will have an opportunity to add another big win to his resume here at Parx.
Sai Wang has also moved way up the leader-board late in the session and is now sitting on ~530k. Wang is primarily a cash game player here on the East Coast but over the summer had a serious boost to his tournament resume. Wang finished 7th in the $2000 buy-in Goliath Main Event in Las Vegas for $66,190 and a 202nd place finish in the WSOP Main Event for $46,096 bringing his career earnings up to ~$170k.
