Texas Hold’em continues to grow in popularity

Poker sites continue to promote and develop the game for online players

Monday 28th June 2004



Leading online poker sites have released statements promoting their hosting of the extremely popular derivative of the game- Texas Hold’em. As part of the whole game’s revival through the internet, television coverage and celebrity players such as Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, as well as the success of online players in the last two World Series of Poker tournaments, the Texas Hold’em version is a real internet draw, with poker sites now focusing on providing realistic versions available online.

Poker sites, Party Poker, Empire Poker, Pacific Poker and Golden Tiger are now promoting this particular strand of the game on their sites, attempting to capitalise on its current popularity.

The sites all host a free version of the game, where players can learn the skills required without risking any funds. When players feel ready to start playing for real money, they also feature tournaments exclusively for the Texas Holdem game. Party Poker first provided a Texas Hold’em service in 2001, and now, like the other sites sees thousands of players visit every day. The Golden Tiger site states that this particular game in poker is now the most popular online version. All the sites enable playing against real opponents- being other internet players- with each table hosting between two and ten players.
