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.
