I found a card called 'The Sparkler' on the drunken man Doctor Leste is attending to after he died. You can play that card and win some gold (not sure how much as it didn't say). You may have to play the first round with him and either pay up or talk your way out of it before the drunken man dies and is lootable.
you can also cure the sick man and he will give you the card as a reward. can't use a potion though, either have to use a revive spell or scroll.

100 gold i got there (on the hard difficulty, don't know if there are any differences)
If you mess up and forget to play the sparkler card, just say you don't have any money and talk to him again for another round of cards.
When you play cards with him and use the Sparkler, say you got the Sparkler off a dead guy that stole it from Griff. It ques a fight, you'll get more gold, plus some xp, and the items on the table, one of which is a very useful Identifying glass.
Additionally, you can just say that "the sparkler always wins, it's the rules" and still get the gold without immediately triggering the battle. You can then proceed to strike them first and still get the experience and loot you would from choosing the wrong dialogue option.
