Ferit Gabriellson raised to 22,000 from late position before Matt Graham made it 96,000 from the small blind. Gabriellson made the call and they took a flop of    . Graham fired out a pot sized bet of 183,000 and Gabriellson went into the tank...for a long time. It seemed almost ten minutes had gone by before the clock was finally called. The seconds ticked down and Gabriellson timed out - his hand declared dead. He wanted to rabbit hunt but wasn't allowed as he slammed    face up to the shock of the entire table. "Are you serious? You folded that?" said Van Marcus. Indeed he did, as Graham takes down a strange pot to start the day.
