either incredible luck

or he was murdered guys like that don't commit suicide this stretches credulity way past breaking they usually get more than a 26k "commission" on the deal too if previous examples are any indication. Whats a little contract brokering among friends not worth killing yourself for even in these odd days.

What a loser

Out of billions of dollars he didn't manage to make even one lousy million in commission ? It's the shame that killed him, all right. The shame of being a lousy businessman.
