The next closest player to Meachum was Aaron Frei who finished with 360,000. He had a strong second half of the day, and won himself a stuffed happy face from Allen Kessler after he knocked him out late in the day.
Aaron Frei gets a happy face after knocking out Allen Kessler
Like Kessler, Dan O'Brien, Ben Keeline, and Jamie Kerstetter all fired again and failed to make it through to Day 2. They are expected to join the field tomorrow. The HPT's 2016 Player of the Year Ryan Gregor ran today and failed to make the dinner break. Tomorrow's flight starts at noon and is expected to be even bigger than today's.
