Poker has always been a spectator's sport. Perhaps the earliest account of Poker comes from New Orleans in 1829: an English actor named Joseph Cowell describes an early version of the game, where four players would draw from a deck of 20 cards and then bet on which player had the most valuable hand. These days, Poker is actually a televised "sport," with ESPN airing The World Series of Poker to sky-high ratings, and Poker-themed TV shows and films being recorded and released in abundance. But you know what's better than watching? Playing. Here you can play without anybody watching – or against anonymous live players around the world in our multiplayer games, if you prefer.
