Who is Dan Bilzerian?
Dan Bilzerian was in the military for 4 years before being honorably discharged. He is 33 years old and has already suffered three heart attacks.

So is Bilzerian actually broke?
Saying Dan Bilzerian is broke could not be further from the truth. He constantly splashes money on models to be by his side, and plays insanely high-stakes poker games.
It will be a very long time until Bilzerian could go broke. His lavish lifestyle could eventually catch-up with him and have him scrape the barrels for money. This is assuming of course, that his health doesn’t take a turn for the worse. His persistent heart problems would generally see a man cut back on the wild lifestyle Bilzerian is currently living.
Right now though, Bilzerian is NOT broke.
