EPT Barcelona: Minieri busts in level 8

The last flag bearer for Team PokerStars has fallen. Dario Minieri, who flashed his aggression around today as easily as he did his World Series bracelet, finally succumbed to a lack of chips, finding himself short stacked on a table that featured the two chip leaders, Sebastian Ruthenberg and Mikael Lundell, both on approximately 110,000.

The end came with T-6. Dario did what he could with it but the board was cruel, delivering two queens to match the one in his opponent’s hand. There was a handshake, the gathering of possessions and the young Italian was gone.
