Pierce Gets it in Drawing Stone Dead; Kassela Busted by Barbero

Paul Pierce  - Eliminated
Paul Pierce - Eliminated

Paul Pierce, who is set to be traded from the Boston Celtics to the Brooklyn Nets on July 10, checked on a flop of {10-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{10-Spades}. Nadar Kakhmazov tossed out 4,000, Pierce check-raised to 24,000, and Kakhmazov moved all in. Pierce called for a few thousand more.

Pierce: {10-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{2-Hearts}
Kakhmazov: {a-Hearts}{k-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{10-Hearts}

Pierce was drawing dead, and hit the rail when the turn and river came {7-Diamonds}, {a-Diamonds} respectively.

Over on an adjacent table, Frank Kassela was all in against Nach Barbero on the river of a {j-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{7-Spades}{7-Hearts}{7-Clubs} board. Kassela's hand went into the muck before we could catch it, but it was no matter, as Barbero had {q-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{x-} for quad sevens.
