Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Ironside (Raymond Burr) wants to find out why young Tim Patterson (Michael Christian) has forsaken a stellar college career to become a pool hustler. It turns out that Tim has taken it upon himself to square the huge gambling debts incurred by his ne'er-do-well brother Bobby (Carl Reindel)--a task made difficult by venal professional gembler Phil Vance (H.M. Wynant). The episode's highlight is a demonstration of the genuine pool-playing prowess of guest star Jack Albertson, cast as champion cue-wielder Money Howard.
