EPT Barcelona: Bauer bows out
Our favourite Canadian rookie Dustin Bauer - Bauer44 - has crashed out as we move towards level 8 (300/600/75). Couldn't buy a hand, since picking up K-K way back when the blinds were young, Dustin was down to 4,000 and change.
Getting it all-in pre-flop with A-8o vs A-Qo, it looked as if he'd survive, as the board came 5-5-K-K, but an ace on the river brought that dodgy kicker into play, and Bauer's 8 all-but booted him out the door.
Left with enough chips to buy a Bic Mac and coke, Bauer was all-in again next hand, and left the tournament holding a mighty 5-2o. Loved every minute of it too, and was last seen heading for the night club in the company of Poker Stars personnel.
