Chris Perkins: A Year in Review




I know we still have one more month until 2017, but where did 2016 go? What a year it was!

This was by far the most exciting year for me as far as poker goes. I started off 2016 with a $14,000 upswing and started playing more live poker with immediate success.

I was able to travel to some beautiful places this year, thanks to Intertops Poker and their small/soft live satellites. Winning packages on Intertops to both Seefeld Austria and St. Martin, I can look back and call this year a success. I met so many new great people in the poker world and have grown my existing relationships.

I started streaming on twitch @ twitch.tv/chrisp200 in March of 2016. I usually stream at least two times a week but there were some months where I didn't stream at all. But Twitch has been such a blessing. Online poker is a bit of a lonely/depressing thing to do all the time by yourself. Twitch has allowed me to meet new people with like minded interest and give back to players starting out.

I think the biggest lesson of the year for me can be summed up in one word. BALANCE (I'm not going to go into it anymore than that).


Anyways, I just wanted to check in with you guys and thank everyone in this community. I have been a member of PocketFives since 2008, and while it may not be what it used to be, it is still my favorite poker community and one of the main ways I got decent at poker.
