To play poker successfully online, players need to not only be aware of the rules of the game, but also the strategies. Poker play relies on being able to read what cards the other players are holding, based on what cards they pick up and discard, as well as how they bet.
Poker is the most played game in the world and although people dispute the age of the game, there is a written reference to poker back in 1834. At this time it was used as a game on the popular Mississippi riverboats. The first rules for the game were published in 1904 and the game still remains known as a five card 'vying game'. It is a vying game because players place their bets as to who is holding the best combination of cards in their hand, rather than actually playing the cards out. Poker has been available online since the mid-1990s and today, online video poker and more recently mobile casino video poker, remains one of the most popular poker games, although Texas Hold'Em, High-Low Poker and Five and Seven Card Stud are also favourites.
