Fun Facts About Dan Bilzerian You Didn’t Know!

When we talk about luxurious lifestyles, guns and of course, women, there’s only one name that pops up in people’s minds, the King of Instagram, Dan Bilzerian! This 39-year-old internet sensation isn’t just filthy rich, he is a high stakes poker player, worth $200 million, who makes a living in the most adventurous way possible. 

Bilzerian is an icon, a force to be reckoned with. In a tweet in 2013, he mused,My greatest fear is that someone will break in and I won’t be able to decide what gun to shoot them with.” Attached was an image of his dining room table, covered with several assault rifles, pistols and magazines. So, here are some crazy facts about the bearded man and his grand lifestyle.

Bill Gates of Poker 

Bilzerian is heavily involved in the world of high-stakes poker. In a 2014 video interview with ALL IN Magazine, Bilzerian called himself the ‘Bill Gates of Poker.’ Bilzerian himself claims to have won tens of millions in private games. In November 2013, Bilzerian posted an unconfirmed claim that he won $10.8 million from a single night of playing poker, and in 2014, he claimed to have won $50 million. His claims are never without a challenge, but maybe it’s not such a huge exaggeration after all. Well, we all love mystery, and knowing his lifestyle, it’s probably true.

But you probably didn’t know that the Bilzerian pushed $1 million in the production of ‘Lone Survivor’ as a trade for a role in the movie as ‘Sr. Chief Dan Healy’. Although the deal went sideways, as the producers had promised him eight minutes of screen time and 80 words. He was cut down to less than a minute and only one line. Knowing the American actor, a man of his word, he sued the producers for the original $1 million and an additional 20% fee.
