    Within a year, Bob almost gambled

    I am wondering if my sentences are grammatically correct.

    Within a year, Bob almost gambled his entire inheritance away. His acquaintances couldn't believe their eyes when they saw him in rags queuing at a food bank.

    I would put a comma after "rags."
