Dan Bilzerian Makes Bold Claims On 24hr Poker Winnings
The show ‘In Depth With Graham Bensinger’ is extremely popular in America as well as with viewers around the world.
Bensinger in an Emmy award winning journalist and his interviews provide great insight and entertainment as he is not afraid to ask the tough questions of his famous guests.
The latest guest to grace his show was Instagram King and self-acclaimed high stakes poker pro Dan Bilzerian. His interview consisted of his usual crazy exploits involving high stake poker games, shooting a variety of guns, travelling the world in luxury, crazy prop bets and having fun with scantily clad women.
Most of those claims cannot be disputed because Bilzerian deliberately documents his travels along with his exploits with guns and women on his Instagram which has more than 24.5 million followers. However, what has always caused controversy and in many cases been questioned is Bilzerian’s claims about winning some massive pots playing high stakes poker.
Bilzerian Won $12.8 Million In 24 Hours
He told Bensinger that the biggest pot that he won playing poker was $12.8 million in a 24 hour period. He did not reveal the name of the player he won the money from but claimed that he was a billionaire. The Instagram King who lives a crazy lifestyle admits that the high stakes poker game had three breaks and during each break they would leave the money on the table, take a break and then continue where they left off.
Bilzerian admits that this was one of the craziest nights of his life and the tension during the poker game was so high that he felt he lost a little bit of hair in the process. He went on to tell Bensinger that the most money he lost playing poker was $3.6 million.
His interview once again caused the poker critics and trolls to come out and stir up controversy. They question his tall poker claims as none of the claims have been proven and they allege his wealth does not come from playing poker but from a trust fund left to him by his father.
In the interview, Bilzerian said
You have to remove your ego from these situations. For me, I just let people talk shit about my poker and that I was bad and that I had a trust fund because that was very helpful for me to get into these games
