Drawing Dead Definition – Learn What Drawing Dead Is In Poker

If you are drawing dead, it means you don’t have any chances of winning, even if your hand improves on the turn or the river.

For example, let’s say you have a JsJh, and your opponent has a 10c8c. You see 7c 9c Jc on the flop and are very happy to hit the top set, but you are drawing dead since your opponent already has nuts with a straight flush. You can’t draw any card to create a stronger hand, and even if you hit quads with the last jack in the deck, you would still lose the hand.
