Drawing Dead

Fortune Jack Poker

Drawing dead refers to the situation where even if you hit your outs and made your hand, you still lose.

Example

Your Hand
Ace of HeartsEight of Hearts
Opponent
Nine of SpadesTen of Spades
The Flop
Six of HeartsNine of HeartsSix of Clubs
The Turn
Nine of Clubs

The flop gave you a flush draw but the turn gave your opponent a full house. You are therefore drawing dead because even if you hit another heart on the river and make your flush, you will still lose since his full house beats a flush.
