Paul Pierce bet 4,000 on a flop of {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}{7-Clubs}, an opponent check-raised to 11,500, and Pierce tank-called. The turn was the {a-Diamonds}, Pierce called a bet of 12,500, and the {8-Diamonds} completed the board.

The player checked, Pierce bet 15,000, and his opponent folded.

The very next hand, Pierce raised in middle position and one opponent called. Both players checked on the flop ({10-Spades}{10-Hearts}{5-Spades}) and the turn ({7-Hearts}), and the 10-time NBA All-Star took the pot with a bet of 5,000 on the river ({7-Clubs}).

Pierce is now flirting with six figures, sitting on about 97,000 chips.
