The former poker player and social media star has written a story about his life

One of the most controversial personalities in the professional poker scene is offering some cash to the person who helps him give a name to his recently finished autobiography. Multi-millionaire Dan Bilzerian confirmed to have just finished writing his autobiography in which he tells the story of his life as a poker player and social media playboy. Bilzerian, whose wealth acquisition from poker earnings has been long questioned, is rewarding $5,000 in exchange for the most creative name to his book.

Bilzerian gave the news on Twitter after saying that he just finished the manuscript for his upcoming autobiography. But since he doesn't have a title in mind, he wants help from his 1.7 million followers to come up with one. "Finished writing my autobiography, $5,000 to the best book title in the comments," wrote Bilzerian.

He recently made the headlines after Bill Perkins wrote about a poker cheating scandal that involved some of the best poker players in the world. Later, Bilzerian accused Dan “Jungleman” Cates of secretly playing in his private online poker home game. Cates confirmed that he ghosted a recreational player in the game; however, he denied ever playing a hand against Bilzerian.

Bilzerian’s poker winnings have been long questioned. He claims to have obtained most of his fortune from playing high-stakes poker games, but the veracity of those claims is questioned, given the fact that he hasn't had major wins coming from live tournaments nor against top competitors in Bobby’s Room at Bellagio or the other famous high roller card rooms. Also, none of the top pros have witnessed Bilzerian winning million in a poker game. Bilzerian claims that he has won money in private high-stakes games against wealthy businesspeople and celebrities. That's quite hard to verify and players such as Doug Polk once suggested that most likely his father, Paul Bilzerian, gave him millions.
