Pierce Takes a Hit

• Taso 8: 400-800, 100 ante
Paul Pierce still has 100 big blinds after running into kings.

A player under the gun opened to 1,900, and Paul Pierce three-bet to 5,000 in middle position. The under-the-gun player made it 16,900 to go, and Pierce asked how much his opponent had behind.

"You can let this one go," the player said. "I'll show you."

Pierce decided to jam it in after brief consideration.

"He's all in?" the player said. "S***."

He called off his last 26,300, though, and he was in solid shape.

Pierce: {a-Hearts}{k-Clubs}
Opponent: {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds}

The board ran out {4-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{j-Hearts}{7-Spades}, causing a player who was on the button to curse, saying he folded jacks to the two raises in front of him.

Paul Pierce us 81,200 -5,500
