Will Dan Bilzerian Play the Highest Stakes Heads-up Poker Match in History Worth $100,000,000?
By Alex Kopestinsky / October 14, 2021
Dan Bilzerian is commonly known as a famous GGPoker ambassador and social media playboy. He recently published his much-awaited autobiography “The Setup,” in which he reveals everything about his journey to becoming one of the world’s wealthiest people.
In the new episode of Logan Paul’s podcast, Bilzerian claimed that most of his wins actually came from Israeli billionaire Alec Gores.
After that revelation, sources stated that Gores was upset Bilzerian publicly named him, so he decided to challenge the Instagram star for potentially the highest stakes heads-up poker match.
Bilzerian spoke more about this event on Michael Sartain’s Podcast. He stated that the match would be for $100,000,000— $50 million each. Thus, making it the biggest heads-up game in history.
Bilzerian claimed that Gores texted him and told him that he wanted to challenge him to see who has the bigger balls for $25 million apiece. But then, Gores stated that he doesn’t want to play unless it’s for at least $50 million. So, after being challenged twice, Bilzerian decided that he’d rather play for $100 million.
There are even rumours that Bilzerian already secured his funds for the match, and he’s just waiting for Gores to do the same. Although there is no exact date for the event, rumours suggest that the match will take place at the end of the year since the World Series of Poker 2021 will end in late November.
Although there aren’t many details, what is known is that the event will take place in Las Vegas and that Bilzerian wants it to be a pay-per-view event. But, don’t worry, we’ll update you with all the details once we know more!
