Aces and Eights: Dead Man's Hand

On August 2, 1876, James Butler "Wild Bill" Hickock (1837-1876) was shot and killed while playing poker in Deadwood, Dakota Territory. He was shot by Jack McCall while holding the ace of diamonds, the ace of clubs, the 8 of spades, the 8 of clubs, and queen of hearts. Since then a poker hand with two pairs, aces and eights, is called "dead man's hand."
