Fogel Moves into the Lead

Bill Fogel

Bill Fogel had been flying under the radar for much of Day 2 but that is no longer the case. Fogel started the day in the middle of the pack with just over 50,000 but he has caught fire after the dinner break.

Fogel doubled his stack of 130,000 holding a king high flush just after dinner against the top pair of his opponent and he hasn't looked back. He is now sitting with a mountain of 466,000 and is all alone at the top of the chip counts with less than three levels of play left in the night.
