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.
