Tables of Dreams

With a Stake of Borrowed Money, Archie Karas Won a Fortune
Michael Konik
From the Print Edition:
Fidel Castro, Summer 94

(continued from page 4)

In two months, Karas may be broke again. He may be sleeping in his car, scrounging to buy into a high-stakes poker game. He may be just another lonely soul staring at the boulevard's flashing lights, dreaming of parlaying his last handful of change into a mountain of cash.

But he'll always know that for several glorious, odds-defying months, he made the Vegas myth come the tune of $17 million.

Michael Konik is the gambling columnist for Cigar Aficionado.
