agerty was in her 30’s and called Gus a con man and a pokerrepublik. She became his pattern as he would always seem to be the one picked to walk away with the money. Although she warned Gus several times to be careful with money, he ignored her. On November 1, 1995, just before eleven o’clock in the morning, Ruth Neffold noticed something on the Electrodes. She discovered that there was a bullet hole in the locked door of the east wing.
Gus was found with a single hole in his door which entered his shirt. He called 9-1-1 and told the operator that someone had just burst out of the room. When nothing had shown up on the computer, she went in the room and found him. He was limp, not breathing, and didn’t respond when she asked him what was wrong. She tried to wake him up and move him to the bedroom. When they could not get him out, she called 9-1-1 and told the operator that someone had just burst out of the room.
The operators went to the room and found Archie. Gus was breathing more normally, and Ruth’s mother went to the room and discovered Archie. She called Gus, and he responsive told her what had happened. She tried to soothe him, and Archie lay his head on her lap. His eyes were closed, and he placed his head on her lap. She could not understand why he was acting the way he was. She could only remember that he was shot.
She could not see the gun that was used because it was a .38 caliber. The experts at the scene said that it was too unlikely that someone would be hit by a .38 caliber bullet, about 100 times more likely to hit the head than the chest.
Archie’s demise changed the entire landscape of the game of Texas Hold ‘Em. Prior to his involvement, many players were resistant to playing on the four number streets, especially with a big raise. With Archie, who was well known for his tendency to charge ahead, if there were multiple players in a hand, they would stay in the hand, and play it out. His style was well known, and teams feared him.
Archie laid up against “pound for pound” wagers, which were made in the old fashion by players pound for pound in a hand, and such a wager could not be covered.
