Lander, WY – Poker’s closest European predecessor was ‘Poque,’ which caught on in France in the 17th century. Poque and its German equivalent, pochen, were both based on the 16th-century Spanish game primero, which featured three cards dealt and bluffing as a crucial part of the game. The French colonists brought Poque to their settlements in North America. English-speaking settlers started calling it “poker” and adopted features of the modern game, including five cards for each player and eventually a 52-card deck. Eventually, the casino was created and here we are today.
This is what’s going on in June at one of Wyoming’s greatest casinos, the Shoshone Rose:
