In 1858 during a poker game in a bar Robert Fallon was shot dead by a man who said Fallon was cheating. The amount Fallon had won was $700 which was a lot of money back then. Someone had to take Fallon’s place and none of the other players were willing to take the unlucky $700. A man who had just walked into the bar said he would play.
By the time the sheriff arrived to investigate the killing, the new player had turned the original $700 into $2,400 in winnings. The sheriff said the original $700 had to be given to Robert Fallon’s family.
When they asked the new player who he was , he turned out to be Fallon’s son, John Fallon who had not seen his father in seven years!! John Fallon hadn’t known that the man who had been shot earlier was his father.
