Always Remember Bat Masterson

The second event has finished! Only 7 players have been participated this event: Luq B1, MolhoQuente, Brokka, Yumeharu, Remi_R, Caninski_Jen and mobius88. It was a tough one since it took super long to finish this event. First round Luq B1 couldn't participate since there was no one to beat. He waited for the next round. On the following picture you can see the flowchart I made for the results.



The winner of this event was : Luq B1! Congrats!! He shall always remember as Bat Masteron!


But speaking of Bat Masterson... who was he anyways?

 

Bat Masterson,


byname of Bartholomew Masterson, pseudonym William Barclay Masterson, (born Nov. 27, 1853, Henryville, Canada East [Quebec]—died October 25, 1921, New York, N.Y., U.S.), gambler, saloonkeeper, lawman, and newspaperman who made a reputation in the old American West.


Born in Canada, Masterson grew up on successive family farms in New York, Illinois, and Kansas. Leaving home at 19, he eventually became a buffalo hunter and Indian scout, working out of Dodge City, Kan. (1873–75). In January 1876 in Sweetwater, Texas, he killed a man and a dance-hall girl in a quarrel and fled back to Dodge City. There, except for brief intervals, he spent the next decade, becoming sometime Ford county sheriff (1877–79) and deputy U.S. marshal (1879) identified with the local town bosses known as “the Gang,” but working mostly as saloonkeeper and gambler. He made occasional visits to other western towns, including Tombstone, Ariz., where he briefly worked with Wyatt Earp at the Oriental Saloon. He ended his Western days in plush Denver gambling houses (1887–1902), until reform-minded citizens asked him to leave.


Masterson’s final years were spent in New York City, where he was successively deputy U.S. marshal for the southern district of New York (appointed by President Theodore Roosevelt), feature writer for Human Life Magazine, and a prominent sports editor for the New York Morning Telegraph. In 1921 he died at his desk of a heart attack.
