Instagram King and high-stakes poker player has signed a deal to become the latest ambassador for GGPoker. Could the American be about to put his money where his mouth is and play some high-stakes against the elite?
“In these crazy times, GGPoker is the best option to get my poker on. They cater to the recreational players and that’s the future of poker, not a bunch of math nerds.”
"I’ve battled guys from the $2 buy-in to the $200,000 buy-in tables at GGPoker, and will be working with GG to make cash game tables even better for the average player out there.”
This is an interesting time for the fans who love a bit of controversy. Bilzerian has always claimed that he won his fortune playing high-stakes poker against rich businessmen, but everyone really knows this isn't true. His father worked as a corporate raider in the 80's on Wall Street and was involved in all kinds of financial chicanery, leading to a prison sentence.
A trust fund was set up for Dan Bilzerian to the tune of almost $200 million which the feds couldn't touch. This is where his flash lifestyle comes from—other people's money.
Daniel Negreanu praised his new collegue, saying what a great signing he will be for GGPoker because of his enormous following. Poker is always under pressure from the likes of esports these days and we need every bit of help we can get people to try our beloved game.
"No one in poker has a bigger reach than Dan,” said Negreanu. “He has won millions in cash games and isn’t afraid to get into the mix against the sharks in the high-stakes streets at GGPoker!”
