It’s probably the most popular card game of all time. Anyone who has ever watched a western movies will have seen the cowboys playing five card stud, or something similar. Poker is considered the top game for the serious bettor, at least in the eyes of the general public.


“Poker is a popular type of card game in which players bet on the value of the card combination (”hand”) in their possession, by placing a bet into a central pot. The winner is the one who holds the hand with the highest value according to an established hand rankings hierarchy, or otherwise the player who remains “in the hand” after all others have folded (the player who makes an un-called bet.).”


There are many variations of poker. The most popular poker game at the present time is undoubtedly Texas Hold’em – a variation on the standard game.


The history of the game is a rich and varied one. It probably goes back many centuries if you like to trace its absolute beginnings. But its more recent past is probably more easily traced:


“The history of poker is a matter of debate. The name of the game likely descended from the Irish Poca (Pron. Pokah) (’Pocket’) or even the French poque, which descended from the German pochen (’to brag as a bluff’ lit. ‘to knock’ [1] ). Yet it is not clear whether the origins of poker itself lie with the games bearing those names. It is commonly regarded as sharing ancestry with the Renaissance game of primero and the French brelan. The English game brag (earlier bragg) clearly descended from brelan and incorporated bluffing (though the concept was known in other games by that time). It is quite possible that all of these earlier games influenced the development of poker as it exists now.”


Today, there are poker tournaments that the Mississippi river boat gamblers would have killed for. But today anyone can join in if they want to. Take a look at UK Betting Central if you’d like to learn more about poker.
