Presuming that you haven't got family and friends in the rafters because it's Day 1a of a Main Event, who would you like to see pitch up and lend their moral support to you on the rail at a live poker tournament?
Top of many people's list might be the super-cool Aaron Paul. Legend of the screen as Jesse Pinkman in Breaking Bad, he'll already be known to many of you as a poker player for L.A. Sunset, after winning his GPI game in 'The Cube' against Fabrice Soulier. Well, Aaron Paul is back to take part in tomorrow's Day 1b of the PokerStars Championships Bahamas Main Event and took the time to come and see how friend and PokerStars buddy Daniel Negreanu (pictured left) was getting on.
Negreanu was involved in a big hand, up against Bradley Snider on a board showing and with 18,000 chips in the middle already, whoever won would be taking a great pot into the final stages.
All of a sudden, while Team PokerStars Pro Negreanu and Aaron Paul shot the breeze, Snider was all-in for around 80,000!
"Wow - OK, you can take it!" said Negreanu, folding quickly.
Negreanu has just 22,000 left, and while that's not a disaster, he's drifted from before well above starting stack earlier. By contrast, Snider is up to around 95,000 chips and that's sufficient for a top ten stack.
