StreamBoat2 Evacuated Before Irma Hit The Region

Streamboat2 has had to be put on hold as the boys (Jeff Gross, Kevin Martin, Jaime Staples and Matt Staples) evacuated out of the British Virgin Islands ahead of Hurricane Irma hitting the region, courtesy of Bill Perkins private jet.

Although plans are for StreamBoat2 to go ahead in the near future, PokerStars recently spoke to Perkins who said, “Reports are coming back of extensive damage, and right now our minds and hearts are with the residents affected and recovering from Hurricane Irma. We intend to assess the situation and help where we are able. Once the islands are able to provide the wonderful experience they normally offer, we will have StreamBoat2. We will coordinate as soon as it is practical.”
