When we last left off Bellande was on a downswing that had knocked his roll down to $3,900 from its highest point of $11,000. That was on May 4th and since then he's had a few ups and downs before bottoming out at $200.
Broke and living like a millionaire is Bellande's credo and so far he's lived up to it.
It's still a mystery how much of this whole thing is on the level. It seems hard to believe he would be able to maintain the lifestyle with a legitimate "bankroll" of $200.
Bellande's Twitter account has 700 followers at the moment but given the way things can blow up that could change pretty quick. We'll just have to wait and see if anyone really cares.
Here are the noteworthy tweets from the last two weeks.

So with just $200 left in his "bankroll" Bellande somehow manages to hit the clubs and maintain himself in style.
