Hi, .. Can you please help me understand the second clause in the following statement.. : Although Tutt had humiliated his rival, Hickok's ultimatum essentially forced his hand. Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wild Bill_Hickok%E2%80%93_Davis_Tutt_shootout Thank you.
Surferplease help me understand
Have you checked a dictionary for the definition of 'ultimatum'?
ultimatum: a statement that orders someone to do something and threatens to punish or attack them if they do not
to force his (Tutt's) hand: to force Tutt to act (in a given way)
Surferforced his hand.
Note the pun here. The expression to force someone's hand involves a metaphoric reference to card games.
