About Poker Tournament Clocks:
No one knows when exactly the poker tournament clock was first used. It is likely that the need for poker tournament clocks originated from several different card games. One of the first that makes written references to Poker clocks was Jonathan H. Green. In 1834 he mentions rules about a game that he calls the 'cheating game', which was being played on Mississippi riverboats with poker tournament clocks. When he realized he was the first to describe this card game, he called it poker.
The game he described was played with 20 cards, a poker tournament clock, and a poker blinds timer using only the aces, kings, queens, jacks and tens. Two to four people could play, and each was dealt five cards. Poker became the number one cheating game on the Mississippi boats, receiving even more action than Three-Card Monte. Most people taken by Three-Card Monte thought the 20-card poker with poker tournament clocks seemed more of a legitimate game, and they came back time and time again.
The game of poker using poker clocks has evolved through the years, with the help of free poker clocks, poker tournament clocks, poker blinds timers and poker clocks through many backroom games to the present day casinos around the world. Its history is rich with famous places and clocks. During the Wild West period of United States history, a saloon with a poker clock could be found in just about every town.
Today, poker is carefully regulated by gambling laws, poker tournament clocks, and saloons have given way to casinos and card rooms poker timer software, but poker is played more than any other card game in the world. It has grown into a sporting event, with competitions, poker blinds clocks and tournaments all around the world. Tournaments using a poker clock take place almost every week of the year somewhere in the world.
