Dead Man’s Hand

Wild Bill Hickock was killed while playing a game of five-card stud  poker.

In his hand, Bill had a pair of black aces and black eights and a queen of hearts.

After his death, that card combination became referred to in poker as Dead Man’s Hand.

According to Bill’s son, the queen card had a drop of his blood on it.
