Poker’s Popularity Surging

17 Jul 2005, Los Angeles, California, USA — The very mention of poker evokes images of middle-aged men, cigars, and five-card stud. Not anymore. Today, Texas Hold ‘Em is the poker game of choice, and more and more people are playing it, in casinos, in tournaments, and at home. At home poker parties are playing out across the country, as poker seems to be going mainstream spurred on, many say, by television shows like Bravo’s «Celebrity Poker Showdown,» «The World Poker Tour» on The Travel Channel, and ESPN’s «World Series Of Poker.» Pictured: Poker chips and cards, a full house. — Image by © Marianna Day Massey/ZUMA/Corbis
