The flop read and both Chris Ferguson and Farokh Dayyani had checked in the blinds. Thomas Hofmann, who finished as the runner-up in the €1,100 No-Limit Hold'em - Little One for One Drop (Event #8) last year, bet 5,500. Ferguson responded with a shove for around 28,000 and Dayyano quickly folded. Hofmann counted out his stack, looked at Ferguson's chips, and then tanked.
After a while, the clock was called on Hofmann and the floor came over. Hofmann was given 30 seconds to make a decision and ended up folding.
