Bill Perkins Multi-Accounting Much Ado About Nothing

Since last month, Bill Perkins and Dan Bilzerian have been streaming their online poker sessions on ACR (Americas Cardroom) live via a Twitch account, but it looks like fate has finally caught up with the pair, who have now been shut off from the site.
The incident relates to Bilzerian using Perkins’ “gastrader” account while playing at the virtual tables, which is blatant multi-accounting, and a clear infringement of ACR’s terms and conditions. Unlike other similar examples, though, Bilzerian and Perkins made no efforts to hide the fact, and instead garnered a legion of fans all content to watch the multi-millionaires having fun playing poker.
Furthermore, Bilzerian and Perkins are hardly online sharks, and so the switch is unlikely to have been to the detriment of any of the people Bilzerian may have faced playing at the $10/$20 and $25/$50 tables. Nevertheless, ACR was duty bound to disable Perkins’s account, rather than give a free pass to the duo because they are the “King of Instagram” and a hedge-fund manager.
During their live stream, a message popped up informing them that “your account has been disabled by administration”, to which Bilzerian was heard to say “They f**kin’ kicked us off!”, and Perkins reply “We got booted, finally?”
However, the now well-publicized incident is likely to play more in the favor of Bilzerian and Perkins who are likely to save themselves a few dollars by being cut off from the action. Recently, for instance, top pro Doug Polk tuned in to one of Bilzerianā€™s sessions in which the playboy lost thousands of dollars, and analysed his play, basically concluding that Bilzerian’s poker skills were not quite up to scratch. In the meantime, having had two such celebrities entertaining huge numbers of followers while on the site will also have provided ACR with a fair amount of free marketing, which it will now no longer receive.
