Mark Radoja Wins Second WSOP Bracelet
Mark Radoja, the Canadian player better known by his online screen name “xqsays”, won his second World Series of Poker bracelet in the $10,000 Heads-up No Limit Hold’em event walking away with an impressive $331,190.
Radoja played his final game against Don Nguyen who pocketed $204,648 in the game.
No Limit Hold’em certainly suited Radoja’s style – he said “I think it’s an absolute perfect format. The skill involved is very high. You look at the end, you look at the field, it’s difficult. It’s tough. A lot of really good poker players pass on this event, which is why there were only 162 players in the field. It’s an absolute thrill and honour to be at the top of that because it’s not just skill, it’s not just luck. It’s a really good combination of both. I brought my A-game and I’m really happy the cards fell my way.”
Before stepping on to the WSOP platform, Radoja became well known for playing high stake Heads-up Sit and Gos online. He said his online experience is “absolutely tremendous for my advantage in this field”.
