And so began a sequence of twists and turns

Falafel died on February 14th
in exchange for guarding it for him, Russian Paul agreed to give him $2 a day to buy more falafel, at least. So Falafel he became. Since no one, not even his mother, called him Matvey, this was fine. And so began a sequence of twists and turns, losses and wins, that culminated in 2007 with his crowning by his peers, the Giants of Backgammon, as a genius, and the best backgammon player in the world.

context: Falafel, the renowned backgammon champion, was kicked out of his mom's house in his younger. He left without anything except an extra hoodie or two, a chessboard and a chess clock, as well as his talent in the chess game. He didn't find an apartment to lodge in the Big Apple; instead, he slept near a chess table, where he first met the Russian Paul, the owner of that table, who brought him food every day over the time he was down and out.

Hi, everyone
How can I analyze the grammatical construction of the phrase in bold? Can "so" be a subject? Thanks
