Dan Bilzerian is an American businessman and recreational poker player who has been a GGPoker Ambassador since December 2020.

He has claimed that he was the pioneer of the Loose-Aggressive (LAG) style of poker and that he has won over $50 million playing poker.

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."
