Wild Bill Hickok and what they call a “Dead Man’s Hand” in poker
2019-10-09
Wild Bill Hickok, real name James Butler Hickok, was a folk hero of the American Wild West. Born in 1837 he lived an adventurous life about which we will tell you more in this article, because Wild Bill was a legend.

Let’s start about his early life. Bill was born in Illinois and tried a lot of jobs during his life, from wagon master to showman and actor. He was quite hot-headed and killed a lot of people during fights. Once, during a wagon check when he worked as a wagon master, he was attacked by a bear, a few gunshots did not stop the animal, so Wild Bill killed it with a knife, but also got some heavy injuries.

In 1865, he quit all his other jobs and became a poker player. Once during play he shot Davis Tutt but was later acquitted. Later a journalist from Harper’s New Monthly Magazine wrote an article about Wild Bill and the gunfight. From this moment he became famous all over the country.

Later, on August 1 in 1876 he was visiting one of the saloons in Deadwood, Dakota Territory to play poker when a drunk man named Jack McCall sat down to play. He lost a lot of money, Hickok encouraged him to quit the game and gave him some money to buy breakfast. The man accepted the money but was insulted. The next day Wild Bill played poker again, but decided to sit with his back to the front door, which was his crucial mistake. Jack McCall entered the saloon and shot Wild Bill in the back of the head saying “Damn you! Take that!” Bill died instantly and fell to the floor, holding in his hand a card combination of two black aces and a pair of black eights, which then became known to poker players all over the world as the “Dead man’s Hand.”
