Early life

Born in Tampa, Florida, he is the son of entrepreneur Paul Bilzerian. Coming from Armenia and emigrating to the USA, Paul Bilzerian was a specialist in taking over companies. Before Paul Bilzerian had to file for bankruptcy and serve a prison term, he had already distributed large sums of his assets within the family. Dan Bilzerian’s stake in this is estimated at $ 100 million and is held in a trust fund. His brother, Adam Bilzerian, brought Dan to poker. Dan Bilzerian was with the US Armed Forces for a while, but left before completing his training. He started studying criminology and economics, but he didn’t finish either.


Dan Bilzerian has been a poker professional since 2009. At the World Series Of Poker he finished 180th in the first year. The following year he was voted the funniest poker player on Twitter. According to Bilzerian, he won about $ 11 million in poker in 2013 and over $ 50 million in 2014. He is also an Instagram star and played minor roles in several films. He invested 1 million in the film Lone Survivor, in which he had a voice role. He later went to court because the time of his appearance, contrary to the agreement, was shortened. Dan Bilzerian often shows up with weapons, that’s what he is known for and many of his Instagram posts have to do with it. For a photo by the Hustler magazine, Dan Bilzerian was supposed to throw the erotic actress Janice Griffith from his house roof, 3 meters below, into his pool. However, he hadn’t thrown them far enough, so Ms. Griffith broke her foot at the poolside. The video went viral. Dan likes animals.
