This wealthy businessman, filmmaker and high stakes poker player never fails to make the headlines. Having been in the news quite a few times in the recent months, Bill Perkins has another announcement to make! The film producer, well-known for his extravagant lifestyle a few hours ago got engaged to vine star Lara Sebastian.
Making his fortune as a hedge fund manager, putting an exact number to Perkin’s net worth would be near to impossible. He along with his girlfriend and a group of friends including Dan Bilzerian are currently on a trip to Croatia. Super active on social media sites, Bill Perkins proposed to Sebastian at Fort of St Lawrence yesterday. He took to his Instagram handle and quickly posted, “She said yes!!! 💍 #Love”.
The excited poker community gave their heartiest congratulations to the couple:
WOW ABOUT TIME

After Phil Galfond’s miraculous comeback against ‘Venividi1993’, the Run It Once Poker founder locked horns with Perkins in the 100/200 PLO Challenge. The heads-up battle is pending with Galfond taking the lead. Almost two months back, Perkins took Twitter by fire after claiming that he knew of a major poker scandal that would make Mike Postle’s case look like a church service. The bombshell turned out to be over-hyped and many fans on Twitter weren’t too impressed with the tease. Turns out, Perkins apologized to his poker companions saying that the situation was not comparable to that of Postle’s.
By now the poker community also knows the amalgamation of chess and poker called choker. This skilled-based game requiring intense observation and chess mastery didn’t stop Perkins to challenge Canada-based player and chess streamer Alexandra Botez who ultimately defeated the producer of ‘Unthinkable’. With $5.44 million in total live winnings, Perkins travels the world with Sebastian, covering the map of USA and beyond. Check out a few more images of the happy couple..
