HISTORY OF TEXAS HOLD'EM POKER

There is debate over the origins of poker and how far back the game can be traced. The Egyptians played betting games with cards as far back as the 12th and 13th centuries, but it was not until the 15th century that a game in Germany known as Pochspiel combined hand ranking with betting and bluffing, similar to the concepts in poker. There have been other games in the past that are similar to poker and these include the 16th century Persian game Ganjifa, the 19th century Persian game As Nas and the English game of Brag. The game that has been nicknamed "poker's mother" was played in 16th century Spain and was known as Primero. The game was played with playing cards and included betting and bluffing. This game evolved and was played as Poque in France and Pochen in Germany. Poque was brought to Canada by the French and it spread from there to the US where it became popular and could be found all over the Wild West. In 1970, the first World Series of Poker tournament was held. Online poker began in 1998 with the first online poker room, Poker Planet, launching. Online poker exploded in 2004 when online poker tournaments became popular.

HOW TO PLAY TEXAS HOLD'EM POKER

The player to the dealer's left must place the first blind – half the minimum bet and the player to his left must place the second blind – the value of the minimum bet. Each player will then be dealt two cards face-down (hole cards). A betting round known as the flop will take place when each player can call, raise or hold. The dealer will then deal three cards face up into the middle of the table. The second round of betting will take place. One more face-up card will be dealt (the turn or fourth street) and a third round of betting will take place. The final and fifth community card (the river or fifth street) will be dealt face-up and players will bet once more. Five card poker hands will be compared (using the player's two hole cards, plus any three community cards) and the winning hand will be determined.
