In August 1881 Bat is hired to come to Cheyenne, Wyoming by John Conant. Before entering the luxurious Cheyenne club, Bat stops Jim Pate from whipping a drunk homesteader and his men from shooting the man who has stopped Pate's rig. Conant meets Bat to tell him his daughter Sarah Lou is engaged to Steven Haley who is a relative newcomer. Rumors are afloat that Haley cheats at poker. If Bat verifies the story, Conant wants to get rid of Haley. When the couple enters the room, Bat says nothing. Afterwards when the two are alone Haley thanks Bat for not saying who he was but Bat only remembers him by the name Slick from two or three years earlier. Some of Pate's men attack Bat again in a saloon adding to the tension. That afternoon at the two o'clock card game Bat plays with Haley, Pate and others. Haley bets his homestead with Pate in a hand Pate wants to win but he "misreads" his cards. Later, Bat informs Conant the game is crooked but it is Pate not Haley who is crooked. Bat confronts...
