Texas Hold'em

I found interesting history fact on the web about texas holdem.

Texas hold'em was born in Rostown, Texas in the early 1900s. After its invention and spred throughout Texas. In the beginning texas hold'em just called hold'em. In 1967 a group of texas gamblers introduced hold'em to Las Vegas.

The Golden Nugget Casino in Las vegas was the only casino that offer the game for several years. Because of its location and decor and it was a "sawdust joint" hold'em not recive many rich clients and professional players sought a more prominent location. In 1969, the Las Vegas professionals were invited to play Texas hold 'em at the entrance of the now-demolished Dunes Casino on the Las Vegas Strip.After receiving only 8 entrants in 1972, the numbers grew to over 100 entrants in 1982, and over 200 in 1991. Now is Texas hold'em the most popular and growing card game in the world.'em

I like to play Texas hold'em and I am learning more and more every day and I can recommend a great poker site if you want to learn Texas Hold'em. On you only play with play money and it is a great site to learn play Texas Hold'em.



  1. Very interesting. I love to play hold em at Full Tilt Poker where you can occasionally get into a game with Phil Ivey or Jennifer Harman. More poker champions play there as well.
