Social media playboy and GGPoker ambassador Dan Bilzerian has long claimed to have won tens of millions playing poker. If revelations shared in both his new autobiography, The Setup, and on the new episode of Logan Paul’s podcast “Impaulsive” are any indication, much of it came from billionaire Alec Gores.
Additionally, sources have indicated that Gores was upset at being publicly named by Bilzerian. This has led him to challenge the Instagram star for potentially the highest stakes heads-up poker match in history.
If the match takes place as Bilzerian said on the Impaulsive podcast—and our sources have confirmed—it will be for $100,000,000 — $50 million each. This would likely be the biggest heads-up match ever.
“That guy Alec [Gores], he saw my podcast and he text me, I said I beat him for like $40-$50 million, and he’s like, ‘oh, the number wasn’t that high,’” Bilzerian said on the podcast. “He’s like, ‘I wanna play you heads-up, let’s see who has the bigger balls for $25 million apiece.”
Bilzerian, as he explains, responded to the text conversation by informing “Alec,” whose full name wasn’t disclosed on the podcast but was in the book, of the profits from their previous sessions.
“I (said to Alec) I’ll play you for $25 million at the Aria if you wanna wire money over,” the social media icon continued. “And then he was like, ‘I don’t wanna play you unless it’s for at least $50 million.’ I was like, ‘I’ll wire in $50 million to the Aria in 10 days if you wanna play, and we can televise it if you want. And so he’s challenged me twice, so I think we might play for $100 million.”
