Poker is one of the most well known and widest spread forms of gambling in existence. Played everywhere from casinos to kitchen tables throughout the world, the history of poker as a game seems to begin in New Orleans in 1829. This early version of the game involved 20 cards and players betting on who they believed had the best hand. It didn't take long for the full deck of cards to enter the game, and soon it morphed further into the game it's known as now. There are dozens of different types of poker played around the world, with standard five card draw and stud poker being joined by variants on the game. One of these variants, Texas Hold 'Em, led to an explosion on popularity in the early 21st Century as it became a surprise television hit.

The most important skill in poker has nothing to do with the actual game itself, but in controlling your reactions. Poker is unique among games and sports in that the person with the weakest hand can actually win, but only if they fool or bluff their opponents into giving up a stronger position. Absolute control over one's emotions, reactions and facial and physical tics will help someone become a much better poker player. Calculating odds is also important, but so is a certain level of unpredictability that hinders an opponent's chances of guessing what you're holding based on how you play your hand. poker is less about the cards and more about the people, so the ability to read the tells of other players is also key if you want to play it well. All of these skills can be learned, but that basic level of self control needs to be in place to begin with.

A great way to learn poker is by joining a poker club or by attending a poker camp (perhaps a poker summer camp?), which you can find on ClassClassifieds.
