It was Aug. 2, 1876.
“Wild Bill” Hickok settled into a seat at the Old Saloon #10 on Main Street. Jack McCall approached him from behind and stuck a .45 pistol to Hickok’s head.
With that shot, Deadwood’s place in poker lore was forever cemented, as was the last hand Wild Bill was ever dealt — aces and eights.
Now, the town of 1,300 in the Black Hills of South Dakota is reasserting itself on the poker map, raising bet limits on July 1 from $100 to $1,000. While no one is certain how big of an effect the vastly bigger bets will have, enthusiasm is abound that it’ll make poker players in Denver, Minnesota, Iowa and beyond take another look at the bustling tourist town steeped in poker history.
