Tables of Dreams
With a Stake of Borrowed Money, Archie Karas Won a Fortune
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 true...to the tune of $17 million.
