Texas Hold’em Poker began in the early 1900’s
Texas Hold’em Poker dates back to early 1900’s to a little town in Texas called Robstown,Tx. This was certified by the Texas State Legislature as being the birthplace of Texas Hold’em.
The game of Texas Hold’em was mainly played in Texas and had spread throughout the whole state by the late 1960’s. And in 1967 Texas Hold’em was introduced to Las Vegas, Nevada by an Elite Group of poker players. The Group of Texans that introduced Texas Hold’em to Las Vegas was the likes of Crandell Addington, Doyle Brunson, Amarillo Slim.
According to Addington the first time he ever saw Texas Hold’em was in 1959 and he took a liking to Hold’em Poker. As explains that playing standard draw poker you only get two chances to bet. But with Hold’em Poker you were able to bet four times, which meant that god players could pick it up real quick and be able to play different strategies.
From 1967 – 1969 the only Casino in Las Vegas to offer Texas Hold’em Poker was the Golden Nugget Casino in Downtown Las Vegas. And in 1969 Las Vegas professionals were invited to play at the Dunes Casino on the Las Vegas Strip. With a good location and a crowd of poker players Hold’em Poker was set for prominent professional poker players to dominate the newest card game in Las Vegas.
In 1969 a Poker Fraternity was named <span style=”line-height: 1.5;”>”Gambling Fraternity Convention.” and was </span><span style=”line-height: 1.5;”>started by Tom Moore. And the First ever Texas Hold’em Tournament was held featuring Texas Hold’em as the Main event. In 1970 two prominent Casino owners purchased the Right’s for Texas Hold’em from Tom Moore. And was bought by two Casino owners for the rights to Texas Hold’em during the 1970’s. The names of two Casino Owners were Benny and Jack Binion. Then once it was purchased they changed the name of this Fraternity from “Gambling Fraternity Convention” to “World Series of Poker.” </span>
Tom Thakery suggested that the Main Event be called No Limit Hold’em. After the Binion brothers agreed to the new name it has never changed. And to this very day the Main Event is still called No Limit Hold’em. There are other times in history that has caused the Boom in popularity of Texas Hold’em Poker such as in 2003 when Chris Moneymaker won the Main Event through qualifying on the internet.
His astounding victory has moved many people into playing Online Poker for real money. Between 2000 to 2011 the growth of Online Poker had moved from a few thousand to over 1 Million players actively playing every day.
