To his great disappointment, his father forbids it and refuses to pass on any of his skills to him for fear that he’ll get enmeshed into the whirlpool of the gambling scene.

Instead, Yan Fei chooses to impart his skills to his 3 disciples, Wu Youkang, Dong Meiyao and Ding Wei, in the hope that 1 of them can take over his gambling empire. But because of this decision, Yan Fei creates a rift in his relationship with his son. The rebellious junior decides to go against his wish and makes a bid for the coveted throne as well.
