Maybe this would not come as a surprise, but even before poker became a hot sport today, it already existed and being played on by various people from all over the globe. Perhaps the difference was it was not really called online gaming but was rather referred to as online gambling. Poker, along with other casino games such as BlackJack, Roulette, Texas Holdem and Craps were very much hooking up people who had an alternative of taking on online games rather than going to the nearest casino in their district.
With the popularity that poker has garnered from celebrities to known personalities, it is evident that the impact was really powerful. A lot of people have emphasized a lot of attention as a lot of these poker tournaments were televised. Strategies and bluffs were seen, allowing all participating poker players to pull out all their tactics just to be able to try and win the pot that would usually amount to thousands of dollars.
