Posted on 04 December 2013 by "T".

It's seems like there was a very interesting high-stakes game running in Las Vegas in the past weekend. Los Angeles-based multimillionaire and poker player Dan Bilzerian, who's best known for his wild lifestyle and parties, recently claimed on twitter to have won $10.8 million in just one night playing heads-up poker.

It's not known who he played against, but he tweeted that the blinds were $5,000/$10,000 and that he headed to Puerto Vallarta (Mexico) in his private jet after to relax. Bilzerian really knows how to relax. In the past 2-3 days he's been posting pictures of himself and 2013 WSOP Main Event runner-up Jay Farber, surrounded by beautiful, scantily clad ladies, enjoying dinner, relaxing by the pool, and soaking up sun on a luxurious yacht.

Wow, if this figure is true what an amazing score. $10,800,000 in one night!!!! What a lifestyle this guy has, he is the modern day playboy. What anybody wouldnt give to be in his shoes for a few days

Do you people really think the guy who lost 10 mil really wants his name out there? And if you won 10 mil off a guy why the **** would you out his name?
I assume he would want to play him again and if you out him publicly he probably would not appreciate it.

He's probably lying. Where was this game ran? Who lost 10 mil?

Anything is possible, it's true that high stakes cash games are played on regular basis on private rooms of las vegas casinos.

Since this games are not public no one can tell for sure if this is true or not since he only have just one side of the story so far.

Playing for huge amounts like this, I guess it makes sense to do it privately. I've always wondered how playing on TV affects your play since you know people will analyze it. Anyways, 10 millions might seem like a lot to us, but for some people, it's really pocket change... Big Smile There's people that are so rich they could feed a whole country for years.

Certainly is a lot of money, however obv whoever he played against is likely a billlionaire like himself. TBH never heard of the guy before, but also look at it this way he only won 1080BB which in headsup certainly very easy to have a 10+bi hotstreak in a session.

I don't know what he is like to play poker or not but given its a headsup match and he boasted like this about it the opponent may not bother to play him again anyway. And will he twitter when he does have another match and looses 20million I wonder?

Good day Smile

I envy the lifestyle of this guy ... he is a playboy in his own sense ... !!!
Coming to the fact of winning 10 million i guess he has won it !! but who knows ..!! Gl at the tables Thumbs Up Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

He is certainly not lying. He even has a photo of the $10.8 mill pending wire transfer on his Instagram. He's just a big attention whore that is only rich because of his dad. He's obviously trying to be some poker icon acting like poker supports his lifestyle.

But then again, I really do like his lifestyle. Not hating
 Heskor08/12/2013 11:49:45 GMT
Hahha he is a millionaire and he wins in poker , no big deal, he can afford to lose money since he has a rich day. I ot more respect for those that wins big with money and has something to lose.

Anyway would have like his lifestyle too, but sadly I was not born with a rich dad. Tongue

Myabe playing poker will let me achieve this.

^haha that exactly. What a douche-receptacle, looking to lap up some attention as some sort of poker god, clearly he will have played some other rich idiot and now acting like he's Esfandiari or soemthing.
Some of these rich banker types, hedge fund managers etc etc could even care if they lose a sum like that, which is sad.
Crazy days.
 DaCapo7108/12/2013 16:06:43 GMT
Crazy, i never heard about these player, but it that true, than this is a real unbelievable winning. But with a heads up game, this is possible. And when two donks play a big stack game, the chnace is good that one of both was the hero Big Smile

Very nice written, couldnt say it better my self

'KTPOKP' topped yesterday's high stakes leaderboard despite banking a relatively modest $60,683. On a day where six-figure profits were scarce, 'KTPOKP' was able to edge ahead of some recognisable grinders, including: Alexander 'Kanu7' Millar ($51,242) and 'OtB_RedBaron' ($49,484).
 mahdrof10/12/2013 09:56:34 GMT
Okay, I admit, he won the 10 million off of me. It was a bad day where he was always cracking my pocket aces with junk, and I got carried away. Anyways, you'll see me a lot more of me on this forum for a while now as I post for points that I can cash out and repay my debts, 50 cents a day. You might even see me copy/pasting irrelevant blibber blabber like my pal Sorin.

Highstakes? Is it? Wow! 10 mil should fall under "fcking-unbelievable-stakes"
 pooya01/01/2014 10:43:10 GMT
my high stakes ends with 1K win Big Smile omg this guy is not playing high stake i swear
 ddblt197001/01/2014 11:03:22 GMT
Yes, it is 10 million dollars, but it is also only 10 (100BB) buyins on that stake. If the guy who has lost has a proper bankroll management it shouldn´t hurt him that much. Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile

P.S.: I have never heard anything about this "poker player" Bilzerian before.
 DaCapo7102/01/2014 14:35:53 GMT
Wow, over 10 millions in a hu game was really unbelievable, but i think if two donks with enough money play against the other, one of them was the hero Big Smile In a highroller game with poker pro´s they have no Chance tongtime without poker skills.
