Poker At Its Trickiest

Playing cards is fun. I grew up with card games being a part of family life - birthdays and special celebrations always featured a card game somewhere along the way.

Today, however, people seem to take playing cards to another level. Look at how poker has become popular! Now everyone has heard about poker but not everyone has played it (myself included). We've all seen it featured on tv and in some great movie scenes over the years (more of that in another post later on).

I found a web page with some incredible yet true poker stories. Wild Bill Hicock features in one of them and President Truman in another.

If that's not enough, there's always the glossary of poker terms to set you thinking. You might be a fish or a high roller without even knowing it!
