Teddy Geddes - Card Player Poker Tour Event 5 Champion 
When this Event 5 Final Table came together, Teddy Geddes controlled nearly a third of the chips in play, but with the Final Table somewhat "tilting" towards the short stacks, as play went on eight handed for close to an hour and a half without an elimination, everyone started to lose ground on where they started, especially Teddy.

At one point, he even found himself at the bottom of the leader board, but after a double up through Nick Palma, he never looked back as he regained the chip lead and held it all the way to the Event 15 championship, his first ever Foxwoods title, good for his biggest cash since his last major poker victory.

That victory came last spring when Teddy won the $1,000 Main Event at Mohegan Sun's Spring Showdown, good for a $47,000 score, but for the Foxwoods "regular" this title will certainly mean a lot to him coming at his "home casino".

Teddy and Nick Palma were the only two players at this Final Table with a decently sized rail and after Palma's elimination in 4th place, you could sense the rail knew the trophy would belong to Teddy, it was only a matter of time.

Teddy will make just over $11,000 for his Event 5 victory, moving himself dangerously close to the $100,000 mark in terms of career tournament earnings.

That concludes another day of Card Player Poker Tour action and we will resume both the live updates and the live stream tomorrow with two starting flights of the $75,000 GTD Event 7, with the first flight starting at 11 AM.
