Paul Pierce Bows Out at The World Series of Poker

Paul Pierce is on his way to the Brooklyn Nets seeking another championship title, but before the ex-Celtic can quench his competitive thirst on the court, Pierce decided to test his skills at the World Series of Poker Pot-Limit Omaha tournament.

Pierce was on a roll for much of the first day, at one point, one of the top 20 in chip count. However, that didn’t last for the basketball star. Pierce began to bleed chips and was eliminated on Saturday evening.

Despite losing $10,000, the future Hall of Fame inductee seemed to be having a good time as reflected in the video above provided by Poker News.
