Flop: 3♠2♠8♠ Pot: 144k
Bilinski checked. Fishberg bet 54k and was called.
Turn: 3♥ Pot: 252k
Bilinski checked. Fishberg bet 142k leaving himself ~350k behind. Bilinski had him covered and moved all-in earning the fold from Fishberg as he showed A♠Q♦.
Bilinski moves over 1M after taking down ~530k from the middle without a showdown. He managed to get Fishberg off of two overs and a flush-draw on the paired board but confirmed that Fishberg was not drawing dead.
Table 46 continues to be the toughest orbit in the field. Ed O’Connell still leads the way but Chris Csik, Joe Palma, Mike Bilinski, and Greg Fishberg are still alive and battling to position themselves late in Day 2.
