A year after making it to the second day of the World Series of Poker, Paul Pierce is making another pilgrimage to Vegas to try his hand again at competitive gambling.
The Brooklyn Nets forward began his second campaign at the tournament on Monday. ESPN poker insider Andrew Feldman was the first to welcome Pierce back to the tournament.
After arriving, Pierce tweeted out a picture to his followers, letting them know that The Truth was wearing sunglasses indoors and ready to play some cards.

His buy-in? A neat $10,000.
So far, Pierce says things are going well. On Tuesday morning, he tweeted he was up to 60,000 in chips.

Pierce went on to say he's currently at 60,400 and had made it to the second day of the tournament.

It’s just another money-making day in Vegas for Pierce, who made a decent run at the 2013 World Series of Poker. He didn’t win, but he did A.C. Slater a chair while getting a back massage at the table.
That's a victory in my book.
