If it didn’t suck enough playing for four full days only to walk away with jack squat*, Tim McDonald of Lexington, KY, the 2010 WSOP Main Event Bubble BoyTM , was ushered away from his table immediately after being eliminated and brought on stage in front of the entire room so that Jack Effel could tell the remaining 747 players they were now in the money . McDonald was then paraded around the Amazon Room on a donkey while the players at the tables chanted, “We’re in the money, We’re in the money, We’re in the money.”
You can watch it all happen above, except for the donkey part. Didn’t really seem that noteworthy at the time.
