Plot

After discovering her father has gone broke from the Crash of the Stock Market, a well-known and confident young woman, Coralie, from the Barbary Coast decides to give up her chance at love in order to succeed in card games. She becomes a popular card dealer named the "Silver Queen".

Coralie Adams is torn between James Kincade, the dapper gambler she admires, and Gerald Forsythe, the responsible man her father has chosen for her to marry. But when her father loses the deed to a silver mine in a poker game, she leaves all that behind, relying on her own skill with cards and gambling to pay way and her family's debts. She starts a successful new life as the Silver Queen running her own gambling hall but the past returns and she is once again caught between her finance and the gambler.
