Poker History

It is likely that poker derived its present day form from elements of many different games. Jonathan H. Green makes one of the earliest written references to poker in 1834. In his writing, Green mentions rules to what he called the "cheating game," which was then being played on Mississippi riverboats. It wasn't until this time that he realized this was the first such publication and that American Hoyle, then current did not mention the game, and he called it Poker.

The origin of the word poker comes from an eighteenth-century French game, poque. However, there are other references to pochspiel, which is a German game. In pochspiel, there is an element of bluffing, where players would indicate whether they wanted to pass or open by rapping on the table and saying, "Ich Poche!" Some say it may even have derived come the Hindu word, pukka.

The game of poker has evolved through the years, through many backroom games to the present day casinos around the world. Its history is rich with famous places and characters. For example, during the Wild West period of United States history, a saloon with a poker table could be found in just about every town from coast to coast.

Today, poker is carefully regulated by gambling laws, and saloons have given way to casinos and cardrooms, but poker is played more than any other card game in the world. It has grown into a sporting event, with competitions and tournaments all around the world.
