|Greg Raymer signs his fossil "bounty" while Fred Paradis adds to his massive CPPT Main Event chip lead.|
Raymer came back from the break with the chip lead with three tables remaining, but after turning two pair against Dilipkumar Patel and getting it all-in against Patel's flopped top set, Raymer was left with just over 250,000 chips.
Since then he's gotten cut down slightly and he finally got his last 180,000 chips all-in pre-flop against Paradis' early position open.
Paradis, who was and is still the chip leader of this Card Player Poker Tour Main Event, would call and table [6d][6s] and Raymer would be flipping for his tournament life as he held [Qh][Jh].
The flip would be over on the flop as Paradis smashed the [6c][Ad][6h] flop, leaving Raymer drawing dead as his CPPT Main Event run was officially over.
Paradis would take in the pot and accept Raymer's signed fossil "bounty" while stacking up close to 1,700,000 chips, controlling close to 20% of the total chips in play.
