Maverick wins the poker title with a royal flush. Angel is shot dead by Coop, who then steals Maverick's prize money. Maverick finds Coop and the Colonel, who schemed together to steal the winnings, fighting over the money a few days later, and takes his money back. Then when Maverick is taking a bath, Coop finds him, and it is revealed that Coop is Maverick's father, and originally stole the money for safe keeping. As they are both taking a bath (separately) Jodie Foster comes in and steals part of the winnings from them. She knew they were father and son. Maverick allows her to steal the money so he can chase after her. I can't blame him.
