Every year, it has been customary to give the Main Event bubble boy a free entry into the following year’s WSOP Main Event. As the action got close to the magic number of 666 players, an unusual event happened when it went hand-for-hand.

Five players went all-in during the first hand of delayed action. Four of those hands would end up being eliminated, causing a four-way tie for 666th place. After a brief discussion with the tournament director, a decision was made that all four players would split the $19,227 min cash (granting them $4,806 each). Not only that, but those four players would also be placed in a mini Sit&Go tournament where the winner will get a free entry into next year’s Main Event.
