Bill Perkins’ Americas Cardroom is disabled during a Twitch stream at the hands of Mr. Instagram. The American Poker Awards ceremony is held. Check out these stories and more in the Friday Hit and Run.
Bill Perkins’ Account Disabled after Latest Dan Bilzerian Session
Dan Bilzerian was again a guest on Bill Perkins’ Thirst Lounge Twitch stream, where he played his latest session on Perkins’ Americas Cardroom account.
In the middle of the session, Bilzerian was booted from the game mid-hand as he played heads-up versus “LOLYOUFOLD.” A pop-up message from Americas Cardroom ominously read: “This account had been disabled by the administrator.”
Bilzerian had previously played on Perkin’s ACR account last month. Some observers noted after the session that Bilzerian had broken poker room rules by playing on somebody else’s account. However, Bilzerian’s opponents were not among those complaining, as thousands of dollars were lost during the session, which Doug Polk broke down.
