Episode Summary

EDIT
The Lazy Ace
AIRED:

Well known gambler and con artist Bret Maverick rides into Sweetwater for a big, well-publicized poker game and a way-too-public-one for his tastes. Surrounded by shady characters and stripped of his weapons, the question becomes whether he'll be able to ride out again like the sheriff wants and if he wants to keep riding.

After the game, Maverick decides to settle down and enjoy the easy life in Sweetwater. But before he can, he has to head out to the Badlands to hunt down the thieves who stole all his money. As Sheriff Tom Guthrie is a bit preoccupied trying to save his job, Bret hooks up with the only help he can get...the devious Philo Sandeen, who sells himself as a guide by claiming to be General Custer's former chief scout!
