Gervais Wins $46,615 at HPT Mini Series

After almost 12 hours of play, Josh Gervais is the last man standing in the $500 HPT Mini Series Main Event from Hollywood Casino Toledo. The Michigan man outlasted a field of 481 entries to take home the top prize of $46,615 along with the custom crystal trophy.

While the road to victory was not an easy one, Gervais had a pretty comfortable lead for the majority of final table play and rarely gave up his chip lead. He began the day in the bottom quarter of the chip counts but quickly climbed his way to the top of the chip counts.

Three-handed play lasted over three hours before Gervais was able to go heads up with his final competitor, Michele Iacovone. Heads up play did not last long as Gervais was able to take out his opponent when his ace-ten won a flip against Iacovone's king-jack.

The $46k score is the largest ever for Gervais who primarily plays cash games in the Detroit market.

HPT's next event is already underway at Golden Gates Casino in Black Hawk, Colorado. That series continues through the week with the $1650 nationally televised Main Event set to kick off this Thursday.
