Mushy has phenomenal luck at poker, but learns that being wealthy is a mixed blessing. Coaxed into a game in town while getting supplies, he wins $1500. Back in camp the drovers fawn on him so much that they neglect their duties to the consternation of trail boss Gil Favor. Chewed out by Favor, Mushy secretly quits his trail-cooking job and heads for town. Rowdy and Wishbone follow him. Mushy has even more luck this time, winning half the saloon and all of owner Lorelei Mears' cash. So she can finagle her losses back, she has the sheriff throw Rowdy and Wishbone in jail on trumped-up charges. When the two are released they have their own idea on how to recoup Mushy's wealth, and Mushy realizes the best disposition of his wealth.Written by
