DID YOU KNOW
Did you know that the state legislature of the state of Texas officially recognizes its town of Robstown as the birthplace of Texas Hold 'Em Poker? On May 11, 2007, released House Concurrent Resolution No. 109, which declared that the state of Texas is the origin of Hold 'Em Poker since it was Texan poker legends Crandell Addington and Doyle "Texas Dolly" Brunson who popularized this version of poker by introducing it to Las Vegas casinos, primarily at the Golden Nugget Casino in 1967, before it was featured at the inaugural World Series of Poker in 1970. According to HCR No. 109, Hold 'Em has surpassed the 7-Card Stud as the most famous type of poker, as it has become the most played poker game in US casinos, with the help of televised WSoP games and the Internet making it easier for amateurs to play poker outside of casinos. In 2006, less than a year before HCR No. 109 was passed, talent agent and celebrity poker player Jamie Gold won a record $12million in the WSoP Main Event, which was a $10,000 no-limit hold 'em poker match. Its fame was further spread with the help of the 1998 film Rounders, which portrayed the life of poker players and starred Matt Damon and Edward Norton.
