Originally a Faro-Bank table brought to Virginia City in the early 1860's. The owner supposed to be one "Black Jake." lost $70,000 in one evening and shot himself. The Second owner, whose name is lost in history ran the tale for one nights play. He was unable to pay of his loss. One report has it that he committed suicide and another report has it that he was saved the trouble. The table was then stored for some years because no one would deal on it. It was finally converted into a "21" table sometime in he late "90's" and it's black reputation seemed to have been forgotten, until one stormy night. A miner, who had been cleaned out in some other gambling house stumbled in half drunk. as the story goes, he gambled a gold ring against a five dollar gold piece, and won. he played all night and by morning had won over $86,000 in cash a team of horses and an interest in a gold mine. Everything the owner of the table had in the world. That caused the third suicide. Now this old relic is in play once again. Fortunes has been won and lost on it. Many famous men have gambled for high states leaning on the green cloth, watching the turn of a card. Virginia City is now a town of relics and memories and ghosts of the past. Suicide Table is truly a relic that is replete with memories of the old town, and who knows perhaps the ghosts of the old timers are still leaning on their elbows, watching for the turn of a card.
