Casino Term: Poker

A genre of card games that generally share betting rules and hand rankings, though some games, particularly those using fewer than 5 cards for a hand can vary. The most popular poker game is likely 5 card draw, which was traditionally a popular home game and today is the basis of Video Poker, found at casinos throughout the world. Texas Holdem has likely surpassed all other games for "Live Play", where people compete against other players. The World Series of Poker has become an internationally televised event as online poker increased overall interest in the game.

Short Definition:
