|Fred Paradis - Card Player Poker Tour Main Event Champion|
Paradis entered into yesterday's Day 2 session with a slightly above average stack and he flew under the radar for much of the day, keeping that average stack through the money bubble.
He would then get moved to the "feature" table and that's when he took off, as he was the first player over the 1,000,000 chip mark and seemingly never looked back heading into Day 3 as one of the bigger stacks in the field.
Day 3 played out much like Day 2, with Paradis starting slow, but staying near the top of the leaderboard even entering into three handed play as the shortest stack before taking off again all the way to his first ever Main Event title.
This result will earn him just over $80,000 after a chop was agreed to heads up and that score moves Paradis close to the $500,000 mark in terms of career live earnings as he claims his fifth career Foxwoods title, putting himself in rare air among the Foxwoods poker elite.
That almost wraps up our coverage of the Card Player Poker Tour as we have one more event to report on, as Event 12 played down to a winner today as well.
