Dan Bilzerian Finds Another High-Stakes Prop Bet

Bilzerian And Bill Perkins Bet Brian Rast He Can't Do Vegas-LA Ride


High-stakes gambler and Instagram celebrity Dan Bilzerian has another huge sum on the line in a Las Vegas-to-LA bicycle ride.

This time, Bilzerian and hedge fund manager/poker player Bill Perkins are betting against poker pro Brian Rast completing the roughly 300-mile ride. Bilzerian and Perkins are putting up a combined $600,000 to Rast’s $100,000 for the bet.

There’s one catch. Rast has had almost no time to prepare.

Rast Tweeted Monday that it has actually been less than a week.

Rast presumably will have 48 hours to complete the ride, which is what Bilzerian had when he got the better of Perkins in their bet last month. Bilzerian, who had months to train, completed the trek in just 33. Bilzerian pocketed nearly $1 million for the ride.

Perkins told Card Player earlier this month that they were working on follow-up wagers such as rowing from England to New York City, walking coast-to-coast across America and climbing Mount Everest. Perkins would likely be the one doing the follow-up challenge.
