Dan Bilzerians Life Exposed As Huge Lie Huge Lie Adanbilzerian/Instagram

Professional poker player and multi-millionaire Dan Bilzerian may look like he’s living the dream, but could it all just be an illusion?

The 37-year-old doesn’t shy away from showing off his lavish lifestyle, complete with parties full of bikini-clad girls and famous friends such as Floyd Mayweather.

Dan – who’s apparently worth a dizzying $60 million (£48 million) – is infamous for his wild and adventurous exploits – he’s said to have suffered two heart attacks due to incredibly excessive partying by the time he was just 35-years-old.

However, all might not be as it seems…

Dan appears to be living the high life, filling his Instagram page – which has over 23 million followers – with pictures of him having fun with glamorous women while relaxing in luxury beachside locations.

However, a critical poker analyst has called Dan’s bluff…

Doug Polk who runs Upswing Poker – a poker tutorial channel on YouTube – has made damning claims against the wealthy social media personality, condemning him as being a ‘big fake’.

Dan swears he made his vast fortune from winning at poker matches, claiming he once won $50 million within a mere 12-14 month period.

In an interview with The Daily Dot back in 2013, Dan said:

Everything’s been great since college,

I went broke after sophomore year, gambled away all my money, sold some guns, turned $750 into $10,000, flew to Vegas, turned 10 thou into $187,000, went back to school, played better.

However, the analyst has stated this exciting origin story could all just be part of the elaborate Dan Bilzerian mythology.

After examining footage, Doug made the following shocking assertion:

He claims to have made all of his money from poker.

Yet his dad made a lot of money, but in the 80s went to jail and was forced to pay a $50-60 million fine and only paid a few million.

The money is missing and we just don’t know where it went?

To get to his controversial conclusion, Doug trawled through footage of a poker match live-streamed by Dan, critiqueing his ‘so-called’ skills, saying:

All in all. I wouldn’t have said he played all that great. On the internet he’s a fish in the water.

Check out Doug’s opinion for yourself in the following no-holds-barred YouTube video:

Various other poker players seemed to agree with Doug’s cutting analysis, describing Dan’s tactics as being ‘awful’ and ‘terrible’.

One YouTube commenter noted:

He isn’t a great player. I don’t think a single person who knows the basics of poker thinks he’s a good player.

But he is a godsend for poker players. The more he promotes poker as an easy vessel to become a millionaire, the better off we all are.

This is not the first time Dan has been accused of being a ‘fake’.

After an investigation into the nature of Dan’s vast fortune, Vice claimed Bilzerian was ‘a beneficiary of – and party to – white collar crimes committed by his father’.

According to the Daily Star, Dan disputed these claims, saying:

People are going to believe what they want to believe.
