It is believed that the known European predecessor of poker was Poque. The game involved dealing three cards for every player as well as bluffing to raise opponents' bets. During the 17th century, French colonists brought the game of Poque to their settlements in North America. Historians widely believed that the closest game format to the poker game we know today was invented in the United States, specifically in New Orleans.


Over a thousand years ago, poker was played as a five-card draw game. In this game format, each player is dealt five cards from the deck. They then attempt to put together the strongest possible hand. They replace the original cards they were dealt with by drawing additional cards from the deck.
