Playing Nearly Perfect, Paradis Peaking At The Right Time

CPPT Main Event (Day 2)
Level 29 (30,000/60,000/10,000)
Total Entrants: 282
Players Remaining: 3
Chip Average: 2,800,000
Fred Paradis (Jewett City, CT)
After ending Day 2 on a tear being the first player up and over the 1,000,000 chip mark, Fred Paradis has had a much different day here at the Card Player Main Event Final Table he has yet to play a really big "decisive" pot.

That doesn't mean that he hasn't been active, quiet the contrary actually, as he's been involved in the majority of the "smaller" pots, taking most of them down to remain above the chip average, allowing him to keep up with the chip leaders.

His plan has worked to perfection, as he's played this Final Table on his terms and is now three handed for the CPPT Main Event title and with the chip lead after using PJ Caruso as a whipping boy over the last few orbits.

First Paradis bluff shoved his stack to take a massive three-bet pot away from Caruso and then he's taken the last two pots off of Caruso, letting his opponent do most of the betting, calling down with better holding each time for small improvements to his stack.

These "body shots" might not be the knockout blows that we've seen at this Final Table, but for a four time defending Foxwoods Champion in his own ring, it might just be a matter of time before he lifts this CPPT Main Event Cup and solidify himself as one of the best Foxwoods players ever.

Paradis now sits with just under 3,500,000 holding a slight advantage on his two opponents.

There are also just under 10 minutes remaining in Level 29, with the blinds and antes set to go to 40,000/80,000/10,000 at the next level up.
