Dan BilzerianPoker players come from different walks of life and most of them like to keep a low profile. Even professional poker players who have made a name for themselves on the circuit, tend to bask in the limelight only during tournament wins when they receive media attention, after which they go back to being relatively quiet.

Yet, not everyone is the same and Dan Bilzerian has shown that he is far from being a quiet, low profile poker player. Bilzerian who comes from Los Angeles is a multi-millionaire and he has made most of his money playing online poker.

Bilzerian is extremely famous on Instagram because he constantly updates his profile by posting some of the most outrageous, lavish and interesting pictures of himself and the lifestyle he is able to afford as a result of playing poker.

If you look at Bilzerian Instagram profile you will find that he has more than one hundred thousand followers and a number of pictures showcasing him with scantily clad women, drinking, partying and even his collection of semi-automatic and automatic weapons. Bilzerian is not shy of his lifestyle or wary of showcasing his vast fortune. He is known for posting pictures of large sums of money which he has won by playing poker.

On his Instagram page, Bilzerian describes himself as a 32 year old who is an actor, astronaut and an asshole. While pictures of Bilzerian show that he is fit and in a good shape, this multi-millionaire poker player has had issues with his health. His lifestyle of partying, travelling, drinking, late nights playing poker and other escapades have taken a considerable toll on his health.

Bilzerian has already suffered two heart attacks when he was 25 years old and back in 2011 after pushing himself to play non-stop poker between Maui and Las Vegas during a three day period, he was once again rushed to the hospital. However, this time it was not a heart attack but was diagnosed as a pulmonary embolism.

One of his biggest achievements was winning the 2009 World Series of Poker. Apart from playing poker, he is also one of the co-founders of the online poker room, Victory Poker. Describing how he started his poker career, Bilzerian said

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

One of the reasons why he is so popular on Instagram is because of his lifestyle and his willingness to make everything public. However, Bilzerian says that he wants to clean up his lifestyle and shed his reputation of being a playboy.
