Four Players Bust the WSOP ME Bubble

It is Friday 13th, 666 players would get paid, and four of them managed to finish on the bubble. It’s not really fright night is it?

It’s just a stack of numbers that fell perfect on the perfect day of the year…there’s no such thing as hoo doo, right?

The suspense had to be unbearable for a few of them, they had to wait for the ESPN cameras before the board could be run.

With four eliminations, Tournament director Jack Effel took them all to the stage and announced they would all be splitting 666th place money - $19,227 - and each would take home $4,806.75 plus they would all play a four-handed single-table tournament to see who wins a $10,000 seat in the WSOP Main Event in 2013.

All of the bubble eliminations can be read here.

UPDATE: The WSOP.com has this:

If there's a silver cloud to this unprecedented storm that blazed over the WSOP, it's that the four "bubble" players were scheduled to square off in a four-handed single-table satellite, which served as a consolation prize. The four were to play for a $10,000 seat in the 2013 WSOP Main Event, the traditional "gift" normally bestowed on the unfortunate bubble victim. However, David Kelley came to the rescue at the last minute and agreed to take the seat in exchange for a $2,500 payment to each of the other three players.

Accordingly, David Kelley becomes the first official entrant into the 2013 WSOP Main Event.
