Alongside girlfriend Lara Sebastian, Perkins fielded questions from a live audience of over 500 viewers Tuesday before conducting a random on-air drawing which was won by Twitch Poker fan HighQI. That award is the second of its kind given away in the past 10 days by the natural gas trader. Twitter follower @joeycocker (aka Jimmy Bluffett) was the lucky winner during the December 5th live drawing.
The packages given away include airfare, 6 nights lodging in the Bahamas, free poker coaching from the likes of Hollywood Ike Haxton, Antonio Esfandiari, Samantha Abernathy or Jeff Gross along with $1,500 for poker buy-ins during the PokerStars Championship Bahamas which will take place January 9-15, 2017.
Bill Perkins Q&A on Twitch Poker
Perkins answered several viewer questions during a live Q&A Session leading up to the virtual raffle. His hedge fund has been up and down this year but is currently performing well, the poker player/businessman explains.
Perkins then confirmed he will be entering the $100,000 buy-in Super High Roller tournament at the Bahamas next month and lists off his favorite poker players: Daniel Negreanu, Antonio Esfandiari and Jeff Gross.
Before the couple signed-off, Sebastian took the opportunity to invite viewers to her @LaraSebastian Instagram account for a future PCA giveaway linked to a charitable cause she’s supporting for homeless individuals in Nevada.
In the meantime, kudos to Bill Perkins and Team Thirst Lounge for helping spread the game of poker while giving a couple of lucky fans an opportunity for a unique experience at next month’s PokerStars Championship Bahamas. It will be fun to keep up with contest winners as they learn from big-name personalities and compete on the live felts!
