Poker is one of the most popular betting games in casinos. With a few cards in hand and simple playing rules, players could try their luck and use their tactics to make a fortune.
Unlike the common casino table games such as Baccarat and Dragon/Tiger, Poker is more challenging and exciting as the players have to use a lot of their psychology, mentality and courage to win their bet. Some professionals of Poker even would ‘’read’’ their opponents mind by observing their facial expressions.
Poker cards are regarded as the most common and popular type of card games in human history. Firstly invented in the 13th century in France, Poker cards originated from the Tarot cards.
Poker cards consisted of 52 cards, plus the 2 Joker cards (sometimes 4). The 52 cards include numbers from 2 to 10, Aces, Jacks, Queens and Kings, each of them having 4 cards.
There are also 4 symbols in the Poker cards, which are Spades, Hearts, Clubs and Diamonds, each have 13 cards.
Poker games are firstly made popular in western countries such as France, the United States and the United Kingdom. Thereafter, they have also started to gain more ground in Asia in recent centuries, especially among the Asian Chinese.
Poker cards are mostly played by Asian Chinese as a leisure or entertaining activity in their own community. Poker cards are legal and easy to buy in their countries, the prices are as low as a few dollars for a deck.
In Malaysia, Malaysian Chinese play Poker cards mostly during the Chinese New Year, as an entertainment event when many friends, relatives or guests are gathered.
With proper practice and participation, Poker games could improve players’ psychology and mentality, hence strengthening their skill to strategise or organise.
Poker games are considered to be the most exciting and intensive event in the casino, as few of the top players gather at a table to battle in their psychology, skills and strategies.
Texas Hold’Em is the most common Poker game in gambling history, and has competed as a main event in the major Poker competitions or tournaments nowadays worldwide, including the World Series of Poker and World Poker Tour.
These world top Poker competitions have grabbed the attention of millions of live streaming audiences, which are even broadcasted in mainstream TV channels such as ESPN.
Meanwhile, Blackjack or commonly known as 21, is another popular or common game among the Malaysian Chinese. Blackjack is mostly played by Chinese during the festivals, especially Lunar New Year.
With simple playing instructions and easy steps to win, Blackjack is also available for several players in a single deck, up to 7-8 players, which is suitable to play during a big gathering.
Poker poses an influence on people through the films as well. There are plenty of movies in the filming history which featured gambling, and most of them are about Poker.
Generally acknowledged as the most successful gambling movie in Chinese film history, “God of Gamblers” had a huge influence to Asian Chinese card games culture. Starring Chow Yun-Fat and Andy Lau, the main character Ko Chun had such a stylish and imposing manner during the Poker games, which was also powerful and dominant on the betting table.
Ko Chun in the film represented the outstanding and distinctive personality of a Poker player. He remained steady and calm, making quick and wise decisions, and confusing his opponents with magical tricks and tactics. His eyes are sharp and fierceful, his facial expressions are often unpredictable, known as the Poker Face, and charming when he shouts the term “show hand”.
“21” is a Hollywood film starring Jim Sturgess and Kevin Spacey. The story is about how a group of university students with great talent of mathematics worked as a team in the Las Vegas casinos to win millions dollars from the Blackjacks games.
Counting and memorising the cards by a group of players isn’t prohibited by casinos, but is unwelcome and could be blacklisted. When the students and their professor’s strategy had been uncovered by the casino head security, things went wrong and the characters started to face problems.
“21” was adapted from a true event and real person named Jeff Ma, who used his brilliant calculating skills to earn a lot of fortune from Las Vegas casinos, and in the end he got blacklisted.
