The XVII century Europe had produced a number of Poker versions. Its French variant called Poque migrated to America. At the begining of the XIX century, the popularity of the game picked up the pace and with a few modifications, the game was renamed and took its current form. The game's popularity is still growing even today.

The very word Poker comes from the French word for the XVIII century game of poque. Another possible explenation of the word is its similarity to a slang term "poke", which was used by pickpockets. Cardsharps who used this 20-card game for cleaning suckers' wallets ("poke") might have used this word with an "r" at the end, hence the word "poker".
Jonathan H. Green was the first to mention the game in
1834. Green learned the rules of Poker and in his writing, he refered to it as the "cheating game," being played on Mississippi riverboats. When he realized a growing interest in the game, he took upon himself to name it and Poker was born.
