Online Poker : Join the Craze

Just about everyone I meet these days seems to play online poker games. . .

From Bill Hickok to Chris Moneymaker, how did poker go from a drunken saloon game to tournaments on television just about twenty-four hours a day? From a time when a bad beat could be the cause of death because of a cowboy with a loaded gun and a bad temper, to "timeouts" for using foul language at a tournament table? Hold em isn't the only game catching like wildfire. Players log-in to their online poker site of choice every day to take a whack at Omaha and Stud games as well. Poker has been launched at full force into our homes and even grandma is loving it!
