With the board reading       and his stack depleted, Craig Fishman bet 50,000 into Erick Lindgren. The man known as "E-Dog" quickly tossed out a raise to 160,000, and Fishman's expression became pained.

"That's a lot of my chips," he said, referencing the fact that he would only have 155,000 or so behind if he called. "You really have a flush? I run that bad against you?"

Eventually, Fishman made the crying call with his    for two pair, but his initial suspicion was proved correct when Lindgren rolled over the    for a runner-runner flush.

Just two hands later, Fishman moved his last 66,000 into the middle, and the action folded around to Lindgren.

"I'll give you some action," Lindgren said while calling and turning over the   .

Fishman held the   , but the flop of     left him looking for fours. The turn ( ) and river ( ) failed to deliver, and he hit the rail in 8th place.
