Here's an article we've written that will answer your question:


It is said that the game was first played during the early part of the 19th century. Moreover, it is widely believed that poker was invented in the United States. Initially, the game had a five-card draw. In this format, every player is dealt five cards from which they attempt the strongest possible poker hand. To do so, they draw additional cards from the deck, replacing some of the cards they are originally dealt.
