Today’s comic is another installment in the Based on a True Story series which highlight’s the legend of Vincent “Chin” Gigante, also known as The Oddfather.

I found this story while reading, “Chin: The Life and Crimes of Mafia Boss Vincent Gigante” by Larry McShane and where he tells us, “In one oft-repeated tale from the Triangle (Gigante’s social club), the cards were once distributed to the Genovese associates at the table. The Chin looked down at this hand, lifted his head and declared, ‘Gin.’ The other players silently tossed in their cards as he took the pot.”
