Professional Poker Player Andy Bloch is selling his mansion in Las Vegas for a price of $9 million. The mansion has six bedrooms and six and a half bathrooms, a media room, a game room with a professional poker table and a great view of the lights from the Las Vegas Strip roughly 30 miles out.
Andy Bloch – Andrew Elliot Bloch (born June 1, 1969 in New Haven, Connecticut) – has won millions of dollars in live cash games and tournaments, with live tournament winnings up to $5.3 million including a WSOP in 7-card stud back in 2012, and some huge prizes for placing 3rd and 2nd in the WSOP $50k mixed game event in 2012 and 2006.
What’s very intersting about Andy Bloch is that he holds two electrical engineering degrees from MIT and a JD from Harvard Law School. While studying at MIT, Bloch became part of the MIT blackjack team, a group of whiz kids who crushed the odds at casinos and became the stuff of modern legend – Bloch said he has made up to $100,000 in one session while playing blackjack.
Bloch was featured in the blackjack documentary The Hot Shoe, as well as starring in his own instructional blackjack DVD, Beating Blackjack, which explains card counting.
