Dan Bilzerian talks LAG poker, earning his millions in recent podcast interview
Anytime Dan Bilzerian talks about poker, (some) of the poker world listens. And because it’s a relatively slow news day you might be interested to know Bilzerian claimed on the True Geordie Podcast that he helped pioneered the loose aggressive style of poker play common in today’s game.
Although he focuses on his life outside of poker, Bilzerian also addresses the $50 plus million in won from a fellow poker and that he doesn’t much care for what the poker community thinks of him. Poker and Dan Bilzerian fans (and haters) can watch the eighty-plus minute video below:
