In a hand that began before Brian Haas was eliminated in 38th place, James Dempsey is all in preflop with 88 against Matthew Schulte's AQ.
The board comes Q42109, and Schulte pairs his queen on the flop to win the pot and eliminate Dempsey in 37th place. That makes Dempsey the unfortunate Bubble Boy for this tournament..
James Dempsey - Out in 37th Place ($0)
So the money bubble burst before it even began, and the rest of the field was pleased that they were already in the money, and could avoid the slow pace and near-constant waiting of hand-for-hand play.
