Alekhine was representing his family in a meeting between him and the Don of a family, in order to discuss a disagreement over booze-selling turf.
The rival Don offered Alekhine's family five million dollars in cash if they would avoid a war and share the territory.
Alekhine accepted the deal.
The rival Don said Alekhine could have the money 'right away'.
Two henchmen came up behind Alekhine and grabbed him, throwing him into a hole in the ground.
When Alekhine looked up he saw his end, for a moment, as five million bucks in dimes came raining out of a huge hopper.
Alekhine barely had time to scream. He was mashed to a pulp.
