Pierce leaves the table
Celts captain Paul Pierce ran out of luck yesterday at the World Series of Poker main event. ESPN reported that No. 34’s quest for a gold bracelet came to an end yesterday after 17 hours and 40 minutes in action. (He outlasted more than half of the field of 2,031 that began on Day 2.) Pierce stood up from his chair, grabbed his backpack, and walked out the door with spectators and players giving him a round of applause as they announced his departure.
