It's been a while since Dan Bilzerian has been in the news. And by news I mean a piece of blatant and obvious click bait. Bilzerian gets views no matter what he does. He's great fodder for the masses. Love him or hate him, he generates clicks and views and in turn we all get paid because Bilzerian is off doing typical Bilzerian shit which either gets you jealous, makes you amused, or gets you riled up to a furious anger that you have to go back and watch it again.
The it in this case is the latest installment of the True Gordie Podcast. True is hysterical and one of the better one out there. He just has a way with words that indescribable. Anyway, in the latest episode #115, Gordie invited Bilzerian to come on and talk about stuff that will be picked over and dissected by the masses. Heck, it's great content and click bait. You won't believe what Bilzerian said next!
This time, he's recycling the story about fleecing some rich dude for $50-plus million. Hey it's for big stakes and those whale stories are always juicy and welcomed. It keeps the poker economy flowing and the juices pumping and the click bait poker media machine thumping like a 5am rave in Ibiza.
As far as the poker goes, Bilzerian said he was one of the trailblazers of loose-aggressive play. He ran up his roll with a massive score worth $54 million. He said he let everyone think he was a trust fund baby in order to get into big games.
"I wasn't trying to be a grinder. It was about getting into games with celebrities, the producers, and hedge fund managers, rich crowd. I didn't want to be associated with poker pros. From a business standpoint, I didn't want to be associated with that crowd because I wanted to get into the big games. I wanted to be the rich idiot. I want them to think I'm no good."
True asked where the hottest women were located.
"It's hard to beat LA," Bilzerian snap-called. "Los Angeles is it's a Mecca for where hot chicks go."
The worst place about dating young women is that they don't get it when Bilzerian quotes a movie they've never seen.
Gordie asked, "How do you switch off?"
"Mushrooms," said Bilzerian. "I slows down time. It connects me with nature. It makes you not want to look at a cell phone."
Other gems from Bilzerian included...
"I hook up with a girl and they're cumming in the first minutes. They're psyched to be with a celebrity."
"I get so much top-tier pussy because I set myself up and my life to get it."
"Life is all about odds and calculated risk. It's the same with chasing women."
"I always thought I would be rich. I didn't know how it'd happen."
