Origins of Poker

The game of POKER has its roots in apocryphal stories, but the English word “poker” was likely derived from a 17th-century French game called poque. The game then evolved into German pochen and a version of primero, which was then brought to North America by French settlers. But no matter what the origins, poker’s roots lie in the bluffing and misdirection spirit that has long pervaded the game.

Poker was first played in the eighteenth century in France, and may have been first used by card hustlers as slang to fool unsuspecting opponents. The word ‘poke’ is still commonly used today, but it has a seedy past. It may have originated as a word used by pickpockets to deceive unknowing opponents.
