Tread lightly! Aaron Paul in the house at PokerStars Championship Bahamas

By Mad Harper

Breaking Bad fans had a real treat at the year’s PokerStars Championship Bahamas event with the attendance of American actor Aaron Paul, who played Jesse Pinkman in the critically-acclaimed series. Paul takes his poker seriously – and put in some decent performances for the  LA Sunset team during last year’s Global Poker League.

As well as making Day 2 of the $5,000 Main Event at Atlantis (he bust just short of the money), Paul also competed in several other tournament and happily posed for dozens of selfies. The Main Event was eventually won by top American pro Christian Harder.

Other stars who competed in the Bahamas included actress Jennifer Tilly, award-winning comedian and actor Kevin Hart and top golf pro Sergio Garcia.
