An awesome history of poker is Randy Lem’s book “Poker: The History of the Game.” Randy is a legend in the world of poker. He had a long journey that he had to take in order to become one of the most prominent poker stars.
In his book, he explains a lot of poker history and is very interesting. He starts with the time of the 1870s, when a New York-based gambler named “the Stonewall” played poker for money. He was later called the “father of poker.” This was his very first trip to Atlantic City.
Well, we all know that this can be the place where the game was born. But, then he goes on to tell us how the poker halls were set up. It took a while for the poker halls to have enough gambling machines in them. Then, they started selling their cards and tickets in bulk and that gave them a huge profit margin.
So, with this huge profit margin, the casinos got in touch with another famous gambler named Randy Lem, who had bought a ticket and started playing. And it was around this time that poker was born.
But, at this point, Randy Lem had to find out how to promote his card game as a game, not just an exhibition for tourists. Therefore, he came up with some methods that worked wonders in making people understand that this game of cards is something they can really play for real.
Players from all over the world understood that a casino is not just gambling. Because of these wonderful rules and the superior quality of cards and the poker halls themselves, poker became popular all over the world.
Many of thesame people who were in the right place at the right time, were the ones who made Randy Lem famous. That is how he was able to travel the world with his poker game. He was also able to play different versions of the game and that is how he was able to gain even more fame.
Randy Lem was finally able to secure his own card game hall after he began making big profits in Atlantic City. This led him to sign a contract to rent it to the gaming company that would eventually become Ultimate Poker. This resulted in the establishment of many of the country’s premier card rooms.
With this, there is no doubt that the poker games became a staple of American life. It is also very common to see a poker game in movies and television shows today. And it seems that every casino hall has a poker room in it.
Randy Lem was also responsible for creating a reputation for online poker. At this point, he discovered a new market of high rollers who wanted to participate in the game of poker but had trouble because of their geographical location. With this new idea, he made online poker what it is today.
A short while after, he and his fellow poker enthusiasts in other casinos formed the Professional Poker Players Association (PPPA) to fight for better rights and more privileges for poker players. The PPA will still be here today, even though Randy Lem is no longer with us. His son Joe took over the family business and now it is growing like wildfire.
