Spring 1884, at Beaver Falls, New Mexico the topic of conversation is the busted casino owned by Bat. An easterner George Winston with a system wipes out his casino with one $20,000 bet on blackjack. He had wanted to stop but his bodyguard Burt Comers told Winston to play one more hand which he won. Comers tries to collect the winnings for Winston but Bat will only pay Winston. After collecting his winnings Winston agrees to put half his money $20,000 back into Bat's casino as an investment. However, Comers overrides Winston so Winston is left leaving a written message. Upon reading it, Bat senses something is amiss so he follows the pair finding that Winston is leaving bills stuck in trees as a signal to Bat about their direction.
