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.”
