Bilzerian was born in Tampa, Florida. He has one recorded poker cash, finishing in 180th place at the 2008 World Series of Poker Main Event.

He has previously tussled with Doug Polk on Twitter, with Bilzerian alleging that he had probably won more in one night than Polk had made throughout his entire career.

In December 2020, to celebrate his 40th birthday, Bilzerian joined GGPoker with a $100,000 Birthday Freeroll.

"In these crazy times, GGPoker is the best option to get my poker on," Bilzerian said at the time. "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.”

In 2021, Bilzerian was rumoured to be playing a $100,000,000 Heads-up Match against billionaire Alec Gores. However, Bilzerian later claimed that his opponent was stalling ahead of the match.

He also appeared on the Doug Polk podcast and was grilled on how he made his money.
