look up any word, like blumpkin:
phenomenon in auctions where the person who wins usually pays more than the auctioned item is worth
Yea I went to an auction yesterday and they had this painting that I knew I could resell for $200 but some douchebag bid $1000 for it. Ridiculous. Whatever, dude just got a mean case of winner's curse.
