Every gambler loses money. All one of them start a mass murder rage. Hard to pin it on that alone.

Right. It seems obvious he had severe mental illnesses. Was he the sickest of the sick, or did something that can be identified set him off?

Yeah... Even best players in the world seem suspect
Why would a top video poker player need free housing after a divorce? If you won a million dollars, why would you need such assistance?

A slight derail but takes a peek into the real life of a claimed professional gambler

The documents said Paddock had received an email from a Gmail account in July encouraging him to try an AR-style rifle before buying one. It said, "we have huge selection" in the Las Vegas area.

Paddock wrote back that he wanted to try several scopes and different types of ammunition. An email in response suggested trying a bump stock on the rifle with a 100-round magazine.

Paddock's email address and the Gmail address had similar names. Investigators say they suspect he may have been emailing himself, but couldn't figure out why.
