American-born Nevisian poker player and writer, who came in 47th in the 2009 World Series of Poker, winning $138,568. His brother Dan also participated in the tournament; their performance led Norman Chad to nickname them the "Flying Bilzerian Brothers".
The son of Armenian-American corporate takeover specialist Paul Bilzerian and Terri Steffen, Adam Bilzerian grew up in Florida with his brother, Dan.
On 11 June 2001, FBI agents raided the Bilzerian residence in Tampa, Florida, in relation to charges of market manipulation against Paul Bilzerian, who was held in prison and not permitted to attend his son's high school graduation. In the aftermath, Adam Bilzerian would question his dream of becoming an Army Green Beret; in press interviews, he asked, "How can you go in and fight for your country when this is what they're doing to [your father]?" Longer term, the incident proved to have a lasting effect on Bilzerian's worldview. In 2007, Adam Bilzerian purchased a residence in Saint Kitts and Nevis, and the following year went on to become a citizen of the country, relinquishing U.S. citizenship in the process.
His book, America: love it or leave it — so I left was published in 2010.
