The man, the myth, the legend Frank Sinatra was a worldwide phenomenon for almost the entire twentieth century, and his stories, the music and movies will live on for many centuries to come.

One of the stories that will now forever live on is the one of French poker professional Michel Abecassis, who played a few games of backgammon with Sinatra back in 1979 in a fancy Biarritz hotel.

Abecassis told us the fantastic tale of Sinatra, and he explained the love he gained for the man that passed away in 1998.
