Hit and Run: Dan Bilzerian Donks Off Bill Perkins ACR Balance; A Look at the First PokerStars Championship Event

Dan Bilzerian plays an online poker session via Bill Perkins Twitch channel. Plus what can we learn from the first PokerStars Championship? Check out these stories and more in the mid-week Hit and Run.

Dan Bilzerian Plays Online Poker Session on Twitch

Over the weekend, Dan Bilzerian of Instagram fame joined Bill Perkins’ The Thirst Lounge Twitch stream, where he played a session on Perkins’ Americas Cardroom account. It was Blizerians’ chance to prove the doubters wrong who have questioned his claims that he made his millions from playing high stakes poker. The session lasts over an hour and ends in predictable (once you start watching it play out) fashion.

He also reportedly rejoined the stream on Tuesday, where he had another tough session.

Doug Polk weighed in on the weekend session in his latest blog post, breaking down Bilzerian’s ability as a high stakes self-made poker professional, where he claims to have won as much as $50 million in a year.

Quick Hitters

– Participation was down in the PokerStars Championship Bahamas this year over last year when it was the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. There are some takeaways that have come out of the first incarnation of the PokerStars Championship. Success in the PCA has traditionally signaled monster years for many players. PokerUpdate took a look at some of the top players who have performed well during the event and could be setting up to have big years.

– The always-insightful Alex Weldon shares his latest thoughts on the latest Brains vs Artificial Intelligence match as well as his most recent experience up against the less-skilled (but still very solid) Slumbot poker AI.

– Daniel Negreanu dives deep into strategy in his latest Full Contact Poker podcast. In the post, he goes over some interesting hands and his recent results from Atlantis.

– Last week Attorney General nominee Jeff Session was asked his opinion on the 2011 Wire Act decision, which stated that the law only applied to sports betting. The answer was ominous but one op-ed suggests that the line of questioning could actually be a good thing for the industry.
