How Poker Became So Popular

Poker was invented in the early 19th century in the US. The exact place is relatively uncertain, although many state that it was born in New Orleans or somewhere in the Louisiana area. They first called it ‘poque’ and it evolved into today’s name after the English speakers came to town, at the beginning of the 1800s. It has become very popular since, especially with the television tournaments. At first, the players would use coins and gold nuggets, instead of the chips.
