Eric Sfez open-shoved 272,000 on the button. Ben Bensihmon thought for a while before folding in the small blind. Bart Lybaert, however, had a far easier decision and snap-called in the big blind.
Sfez needed help or he would become the final table bubble. Help didn't arrive on a board, making the Day 1a chipleader the 10th place finisher. Sfez received €7,009 as a consolation prize.
