High-stakes poker player and social media celebrity Dan Bilzerian defended the origins of his wealth in an In Depth with Graham Bensinger interview published online this week.

Bilzerian denied the role of his trust fund in establishing his position as one of poker’s biggest playboys. He said his reputation as a fish helped him win millions in private games.

“For me, I just let people talk sh-t about my poker, and that I was bad and that I had a trust fund. ‘Cause that was all very helpful for me to get into these [poker] games… I never cared if people thought that I was good. I never gave a sh-t how people thought that I got my money. I still don’t.”

Bilzerian told Howard Stern back in 2014 that his net worth was $100 million. He is the son of Paul Bilzerian, a wealthy corporate raider at his peak in the 1980s. Vice alleged in 2015 that the younger Bilzerian “is a beneficiary of—and party to—white collar crimes committed by his father.”

Also in the interview, Bilzerian recapped a heads-up match where he had about $18 million on the table. He said he was playing against a billionaire who always had him covered.

When asked about his biggest losses Dan says he lost once 3,6 million but that didn't get to him. On the other hand a night when he gave opponent 50 thousand stayed long in his memory as he was losing all night, though the blinds were relatively small.

He doesn't give a shit about his game or poker, just likes to the convenience it gives him in explaining his wealth :D

yea maybe initially, but hes been around for a long time now and his claims have been noted. its not like he needs to further back them up years down the road to the IRS when there was never any proof to begin with.


  I never cared if people thought that I was good. I never gave a sh-t how people thought that I got my money. I still don’t.


...of course he does. all this dude does is project his own insecurity. cant even resist defending himself years later over literally nothing happening simply bc he needs his name in the headlines. kinda sad LP reports on him IMO, he has nothing to do with poker.

bitch on a pension suck my dong

I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance, by running away from the scene of an accident.
