How Dan Bilzerian’s net worth was built
Dan Bilzerian is a professional poker player and stuntman who built his net worth with help from his father, corporate takeover specialist Paul Bilzerian, who left Bilzerian and his brother Adam trust funds. Following his high school graduation, Bilzerian enlisted in the Navy and began training in the SEAL program. But a dispute with a superior ended his military career before graduation.
After that ordeal, Bilzerian enrolled at the University of Florida, where he learned to play poker. The well-conditioned former military man also picked up a new skill as a stunt actor and landed his first role in the movie “Olympus Has Fallen.” He also has appeared in “Lone Survivor,” “The Equalizer” and several other films.
According to TheRichest, Bilzerian’s net worth is $150 million.
