Wild West Western Facts

Dead Man's Hand




A poker hand consisting of a pair of aces and a pair of eights.

Traditionally, Wild Bill Hickok was holding this hand when he was shot dead by Jack McCall in a Deadwood saloon.

Some sources dispute the hand, saying that it really contained two jacks, not aces and two eights.
