Poker Video of the Week: 3 Monsters, 1 Aaron Paul Picture

Poker players often sit there for hours waiting for a good hand. When it finally happens, they need to maximize their profits.

In this hand at the first-ever PokerStars Championship Bahamas, three players received a monster simultaneously. But only one got to profit from it.

With the European Poker Tour – and all the smaller PokerStars tours – now gone, all eyes were on the inaugural PokerStars Championship Bahamas to see how it would be received.

The main event attracted 768 players, so it was quite a sizeable tournament, but on the other hand some of the side events admittedly were a little short on players.

Thomas Mühlemann, a Swiss player, probably didn’t care about the number of players in the side events when he woke up with pocket aces on Day 2 of the main event.

What did catch his attention was that there were two players at his table who went all-in with him. The whole table was astonished with what they had to show.

The hands of Penalver and Aquino were pretty good indeed; they were just a little worse than Mühlemann’s.

Aaron Paul – aka Breaking Bad’s Jesse Pinkman – and German high roller Christoph Vogelsang found this incredible match-up so memorable they hurried to take photos of it.

By the way our Swiss hero has 68% equity in this situation. That means he’s going to lose one out of three times. Watch the video to see what happened.
