Aaron Paul Breaks Bad to Bust $10,000 WSOP Main Event
Aaron Paul, famous for portraying Jesse Pinkman in the award-winning Breaking Bad, is the latest celebrity to slap down $10,000 to play the World Series of Poker Main Event in Las Vegas.
Update: Shortly into the second level of the day Paul got into a big pot against poker pro Keith Lehr. Paul flopped a set and by the river all his chips were in the middle.
Unfortunately for the Hollywood actor his opponent had flopped a flush.
Thanks to that cooler Paul is among the first to bust this year's WSOP Main Event.
Paul showed up bright and early at the Rio All-Suite Hotel for Day 1c of the 2015 WSOP Main Event.
He took a seat in Pavilion, which is the largest tournament area in the Rio All-Suite hotel, and was joined by professional players Keith Lehr and Joe Bartholdi.
Chasing Millions at the WSOP
Paul quickly mixed it up with the other players at the table and raised a few pots early.
At the first break he was holding steady.
Paul actually stopped by the WSOP last year to rail some of the action but this is the first time he’s actually played in the Main Event, which remains the crown jewel of poker tournaments.
It’s unlikely the ultra-successful Paul needs the money but last year Swede Martin Jacobson took home $10 million for winning the Main Event, which is hardly chump change.
Interestingly Paul’s Breaking Bad partner Bryan Cranston, who played Walter White, was also in Vegas earlier this summer when he attended the Electric Daisy Carnival.
No word as to whether Cranston will make an appearance to cheer on his Breaking Bad buddy.
Paul is the latest in a long line of actors and celebs who have played the Main Event including Ray Romano, Hank Azaria, Shannon Elizabeth, Tobey Maguire, Laura Prepon, Jason Alexander, Kevin Pollak.
