When Tuco speaks with Bill Carson he repeats the word "Sadhill" among other things, in a loud voice. Not long after this he goes off for water in a hurry. Blondie can't have been far off, given how slow he moves and he makes it to the  wagon before Tuco returns. There is a real chance he heard Tuco's "Sadhill".

There is also a real chance he heard enough to think to pretend Bill gave him the name (something I suspected him of on first viewing).

Of course we know neither of things things did happen. But how does Tuco?

I wonder if at any point, perhaps on their journey back to town, Tuco had time to think and maybe drilled Blondie about the cemetery name, but its implied Blondie didn't speak all the way back. Or if in the following days Tuco was careful and tested whether or not blondie knew enough to slip away without him and beat him to Sadhill?

Of course Tuco isn't always the greatest thinker,  its not  far-feteched the idea that neither of those two things entered his mind.

Or perhaps I miss something myself,  having only been watching this film for two weeks. Is  there a reason to think Tuco had good reason to assume Blondie heard nothing?
