Texas Hold 'em and blackjack player extraordinaire Andy Bloch is looking to cash in his Las Vegas mansion for a stack of chips worth $8,999,000.

Bloch started out as a member of the MIT blackjack team, the group of whiz kids who crushed the odds at casinos and became the stuff of modern legend. And he's certainly got a full house here: All 10,591 square feet of it is stuffed with custom furnishings that ooze glitz and glamour.

The six-bedroom, 6.6-bathroom house features a heavily masculine color palette of brown, gray, and black, with plenty of stone and tile. There's a media room and a game room with, naturally, a professional poker table.

When Bloch isn't gambling, we imagine he's relaxing in the master bedroom, which has a ginormous walk-in closet.

Even the master bathroom is palatial, with four vanity stations, black tile floor, gilded woodwork, and walk-in shower.

On the back terrace, guests can view the lights from the Las Vegas Strip roughly 30 miles out.

Gavin Ernstone is the listing agent. And all in all, we'd wager he won't have a hard time selling this gem as soon as someone wins big in Sin City, a mere half-hour drive away. Gamblers, after all, are always looking for good luck. What could be better than drawing energy from the former home of one of the greatest gamblers of all time?
