What is Drawing Dead in Poker?

« View All Poker Terms

Drawing Dead means playing a hand that cannot win against an opponent’s hand, even if it improves. For example, if one player has A♠ Q♠ and another has K♠ 9♠, and the board reads 28♠ 6♠ 2♠ then the player with K♠ 9♠ can’t possibly win and is drawing dead.
