Baumstein Eliminated with Brutal River

We arrived at the table to witness a pretty big pot between Garri Tevosov and Scott Baumstein on the flop of {9-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{2-Diamonds}. Tevosov fired 17,600 into the pot of about 25,000 and Baumstein called to see the turn.

The turn was the {6-Hearts} and Tevosov bet again, this time wagering 25,600 with a tad over 56,000 behind. Baumstein raised all in for 62,400. Tevosov looked very incomfortable with the shove and tanked for a bit. Eventually, he made the call.

Baumstein asked Tevosov if he had two kings before he tabled the {Q-Hearts}{Q-Spades}. Tevosov shook his head and tabled the {A-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} for just a straight draw.

"I've got a bad feeling," said Baumstein as he stood from his chair.

The river smacked the board with the {5-Spades} and Tevosov smacked his straight. Baumstein threw his hands up in the air and began ranting about how bad the play was by Tevosov. He then collected his things, but didn't quite leave the area just yet. Baumstein spent a minute or two pacing back and forth next to the table, mumbling to himself about the hand.

"That's so bad, you play so bad," he was heard saying. "I mean, you didn't even know what to do when I shoved, that's so bad!"

Baumstein then made his way back around the table and in the direction of Tevosov's seat. When he breezed by, he made sure to toss out a few more comments about how bad he thought the play was from Tevosov. He then made his way through a few tables as if he was looking for someone to tell his story to. In the end, Baumstein slowly strolled out of the tournament room with a very empty look on his face.
