  • Book talks about sex, drugs and near-death experiences

Some love him, some hate him, some are jealous of him and some want to be like him. Dan Bilzerian continues to be a controversial figure in the poker world, but that hasn’t stopped big names in the poker world like GGPoker from hiring him as their brand ambassador.

The configuration – new book

Dan Bilzerian is known as “the instagram kingas he has over 33.3 million subscribers and his following continues to grow rapidly as he posts pictures with scantily clad women, guns, piles of cash and exotic adventures. He lives a lavish and generous life and makes no apologies for it.

The poker community has been skeptical of Bilzerian and his claims of making millions of dollars playing high stakes poker because almost no one in the poker community can verify he has played with or seen Bilzerian play and earn millions of dollars as he has claimed over the years. Many poker players believe that Bilzerian’s wealth was inherited and his poker exploits are just fake stories.

Bilzerian has released a new book called “The Setup” which gives us a detailed look at the different parts of his life. He covered five specific areas of his life that give us a behind-the-scenes look at what happened in his life. Readers will learn about his childhood, his time in the military, his poker adventures, his rise to fame and how he tested the limits of excess.

Graphic images and evidence of poker exploits

If you know someone who loves Dan Bilzerian or know a poker player, then giving this book as a gift for the holidays might be a great idea. Note however that the book contains many graphic images and content describing his sexual adventures, experiences with drugs and near-death experiences.

There are also photos showing proof of some of his high-stakes poker deals, including one with a contractor. Alec Gores showing a wire transfer confirmation for over $10 million. There were rumors earlier this year that since Gores didn’t like his name mentioned in the book, he was going to challenge Bilzerian to a $100 million poker match which has yet to be finalized.
