Business owner Eric Medved was the chip leader through much of Day 2 on Sunday. Medved was the first to hit the 1M chip mark and climbed as high as 1.5M on Sunday before finishing the day with 772k. That's what he started with at Monday's final table.
This was Medved's first time playing under the bright lights of an HPT final table. The Shawnee, Kansas native made the most of the opportunity and played his way to a fourth-place finish, good for a $28,620 payday.
