The History of Televisioned Poker

Following the poker boom, Poker television programs became extremely popular especially in North America and Europe. The history of poker on television dates back to the 70’s where poker started frequently appearing on television. In the USA, CBS started airing the final of the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event.

The televisions programs showing poker became extremely popular as the viewers couldn’t make out what cards the players had. Earlier, the commentators used to guess the cards of the players. This made the experience very exciting and a lot of people enjoyed watching poker tournaments on television.

In recent years there has been a considerable decline in the viewership of the poker tournaments on television. This has mainly because of the hole cam which helps to know the cards players are holding. Today, poker tournaments are shown in various movies such as Casino Royale and others.
