Poker Information:


It is not very clear as of when exactly the poker timer was first used. It is likely that the need for a poker timer originated from several different games. One of the first that makes written references to Poker 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 timers. When he realized he was the first to describe this game, he called it Poker.


The game he described was played with 20 cards, a poker tournament timer, 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 would now prefer to use a poker tournament clock.

The game of poker has evolved through the years, with the help of free poker timer, poker countdown timer, poker blinds timer and poker timers through many backroom games to the present day casinos around the world. Its history is rich with famous places and characters. For example, during the Wild West period of United States history, a saloon with a poker table using a timer could be found in just about every town from coast to coast.

Today, poker is carefully regulated by gambling laws, poker tournament timers, and saloons have given way to casinos and card rooms, but poker is played more than any other card game in the world. It has grown into a sporting event, with competitions, poker blinds timers and tournaments all around the world. Tournaments using a poker blinds timer take place almost every week of the year somewhere in the world.

Poker today is one of the fastest growing, but hardly recognized sporting events. The pinnacle of the poker timer world, The World Series of Poker, attracts poker timer players from all over the world every year to compete for money and titles as the world's top poker players.
