Dan Bilzerian At Aria With $2 Million on the Table

I wonder who he is playing?

**Note: It has since been discovered that in true Bilzerian fashion, it was all flash and no cash at the poker table as it seems the wannabe poker player posted a year old pic. Thanks to Reading Poker Tells and Aaron Todd for the tip.

Posting on Instagram from the Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Dan Bilzerian has clearly not lost his propensity to brag as he apparently sits with at least $2 million dollars in chips on the table, with what looks to be a big blind of $1,200.

As always, his Instagram is filled with the latest from his “baller” lifestyle that has made him so famous.
