World Series Of Poker -- Paul Pierce Has Big Stack In $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha
NBA Pro Poised To Make Deep Run In WSOP Event
Professional basketball player Paul Pierce was sparring with professional poker players on Saturday in Las Vegas — and was actually doing quite well.
Pierce made the trip to the 2013 World Series of Poker and entered the $10,000 buy-in pot-limit Omaha championship, an event which always draws the best of the best.
At around 5 p.m. local time on Saturday, Piece had a stack of nearly 250,000, which put him as one of the top 10 stacks with 143 left.
On one hand, Piece turned a straight flush on a board reading 10 7 4 6, and he crippled an opponent. Some in the room were considering the hand a slowroll because Pierce thought about the call briefly with the A 3 5 3.
Pierce has never cashed in a WSOP tournament before.
A total of 386 players put up the five-figure buy-in.
First place will walk away with $852,692 in prize money. The sum might not be as special for Pierce, as he makes more than $15 million a year playing basketball.
