“This Superbowl could kill more people in Las Vegas than the October 1 shooter”
Former Full Tilt poker pro Andy Bloch made the bold prediction that Super Bowl LV and the gatherings and watch parties throughout Nevada could cause more deaths than Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock.
This Superbowl could kill more people in Las Vegas than the October 1 shooter. (And that’s not including visitors.) https://t.co/KpRoSsUN6H

Andy Bloch backing up his bold prediction with facts
This is already the second time that Andy Bloch made the headlines with a COVID prediction.
When the casinos reopened in Las Vegas last year, he warned of a second COVID wave and ended up being right as the number of new cases per day increased heavily from an average of 250 to more than 3,000!
Currently the daily cases are down to 1,000 or even bit less that, which is a good sign. However, Andy Bloch is worried that Nevada will soon see a significant increase again due to the numerous Superbowl parties and gathering throughout last weekend.
Unfortunately many fans have been ignoring Social distancing guidelines or didn’t wear their face masks.
Super Bowl LV took place in Tampa – Why is it an issue for Las Vegas?
As Super Bowl 2021 took place in Tampa, Florida, you are probably asking yourself now why Andy Bloch thinks this is an issue for Las Vegas and Nevada.
Well, every year many thousands of football fans travel to Las Vegas for Super Bowl weekend to bet big on the games, gamble and party hard.
All bars and sportsbook in Sin City were crowded last weekend, which obviously benefits the spread of the virus, especially regarding that many of them were drunk and therefore didn’t take too much care.
“It will cause around 100 deaths”
Andy Bloch was part of the legendary MIT Blackjack Team and is a math genius.
Here is his calculation he revealed before the game:
“If COVID-19 spreads just twice as much because of social events tomorrow, we’ll have over 700 extra people infected tomorrow just in Clark County, Nevada. That will be barely detectable if you look just at the weekly average of reported infections. In two months, even if we continue on the same downward trajectory, these extra 700 or so reported cases will increase to over 5000 reported cases, which will cause around 100 deaths.”
Andy Bloch believes that Super Bowl weekend will set the entire state of Nevada back a full week of recovery!
Stephen Paddock killed 61 people in the October 1 shooting
Stephen Craig Paddock was the perpetrator of the 2017 Las Vegas shooting, where he opened fire into a crowd of approximately 22,000 people attending a country music festival at Mandalay Bay.
The incident is the deadliest mass shooting by a single gunman in the history of the United States with 61 fatalities.
