Pierce Dunked, Scott Sunk

• Level 8: 200-400, 50 ante
Paul Pierce: from downtown ... to Bustville

It's no lie - Boston Celtics legend Paul "The Truth" Pierce has been eliminated from this event.

The action folded to California's Casey Stewart who raised to 850 from middle position before Pierce reraised to 1,500. All the others got out of the way and Stewart four-bet it, putting Pierce at risk. Pierce decided to call all-in and the cards were tabled:

Stewart: {A-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}
Pierce: {K-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}

The board was spread {A-Clubs}{6-Spades}{6-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{5-Spades} and Pierce was fouled out. We can also report that Kara Scott has also been eliminated after having been crippled in an earlier hand.
