Legends of the Hidden Temple: Wild Bill Hickok and the Dead Man's Hand (Season 1, Episode 4) (Episode 4 of 120)
Recently I posted info about "Aces and Eights" which in poker is called "A Dead Man's Hand" and it refers the hand held by Wild Bill Hickok the day he was shot in the back while playing cards.
I have been doing a lot of writing lately, on a book and a couple of songs. One song is called 'Dead Man's Hand', and it is about the dangerous gamblers in the saloon where Wild Bill Hickok was killed. The cards he held, two aces, two eights and a black queen, were from then on referred to as the 'Dead Man's Hand'. Also around this time, the Lord asked me to prophesy about gambling, and to tell others how it is a form of COVETOUSNESS. Many people will not look at it that way, but plain and simple, if one gambles, then one is guilty of coveting the property (money) of others. It does not matter if many other people are doing it, it is wrong. Lotto, bingo, poker, casinos, horseracing, it is all breaking one of the Ten Commandments. Once I occasionally did all of those things I listed, but no longer, and Lord please help me to not stumble over this issue every again, hallelujah! Let us strive for the narrow path!!
Casino Royale Trivia The term 'Dead Man's Hand' is used to describe a hand containing two black aces and two black eights. Why? Because Wild Bill Hickok was holding such a hand when he was shot.
Hey, gambling trivia buffs! What, exactly, was the makeup of Wild Bill Hickock's (I think he's the Dead Man, although I don't know if I spelled his name right) Dead Man's Hand? A pair of aces and a pair of eights, or a full house? If it was just two pairs, what was the fifth card? I don't know the answers, so I hope you do.
