A concise history of online poker

With the dawn of the internet and the fact that the internet seemed to stem from the USA, it was inevitable that a game called "Texas Holdem" was going to become very very popular. Online poker has grown with the internet and subsequently, poker in its own right has grown too, now offering many millions of dollars in prize money both live and online. Poker is one of, if not THE most popular participation sport nowadays and this is in the main down to the internet. Online poker has made playing a game of poker so easy, anyone, wherever they are based in the world can be assured of a game to suit their bankroll at anytime of the day. Not only is "Texas Holdem" available, however, nowadays you will also find all manner of poker disciplines. NLH, Pot Limit Holdem, Omaha, Omaha Hi Lo, Horse, Hose, Razz etc. This is all down to the internet and the rise in popularity of online poker.
 
The very first game of online poker was played at IRC in the late nineties and the very first cash hand was played on Planet Poker on January 1st 1998.
 
Online poker seemed to hit a peak in the mid 2000's and by the present day has settled down reasonably well. The peak may well be false however, it shared a time when the USA appeared to suggest that online poker and in fact all online gambling was illegal. The legalities have forced many large corporations out of the US online poker market, thus the peak may well be seen to be beaten in years to come when inevitably online poker is proven to be legal once again in the USA.
 
Over the last ten years or so many poker rooms have sadly come and gone, this will probably be the norm whilst there is no real legislation policing the game or industry. Until the game is legalised in the US and a governing body is formed, it seems that it is only safe to play at the larger more established rooms such as Poker Stars and Full Tilt, thus safeguarding your online poker funds. Playing at some of the smaller and newer online poker rooms can be very risky and quite often these smaller rooms disappear taking your money with them.
