August 2: Western Lawman Invents 'Dead Man's Hand'



This milestone in the history of poker is also portrayed in Little Big Man, The Raiders, I Killed Wild Bill Hickok, and The Plainsman (both 1936 and 1966 versions).

Suggestion: if you're dealt a pair of aces and an eight... Fold.

Suggestion: if you're dealt a pair of aces and a pair of eights... Draw.
