Poker

The wild side of life – at the venerable Casino Baden-Baden.

Cards played an important role early on in the gaming era in Baden-Baden. The whist and ecarte once played have been aced by poker. The times, they are a-changing. Whether Chinese Emperor Mu-tsung’s domino poker, the Persian card game as nas, or the German pochspiel, today’s poker community doesn’t care where it came from. You’ll love this unique atmosphere where the modern, wild world of poker meets the classical elegance of Casino Baden-Baden. Casino Baden-Baden manages to combine both worlds like no other casino.

Poker history
Playing cards migrated from India and China to France, and from there to New Orleans along with the colonists in the eighteenth century. The game was called poque. Bluffing, raising the antes, and the traditional French colour suits of spades, clubs, hearts, and diamonds were all part of the game. Riverboats swept the poker boom into the wild west and the saloons of cities, and poker took as much of a firm footing in the American Way of Life as did Coke and liberty – leading to expressions in the dictionary such as “poker-faced.”

Texas hold ’em
A fifty-two-card deck replaced the old thirty-two in the middle of the nineteenth century, and the first rules followed on. Straight and flush were added, and the game split into five-card stud and five-card draw. The predecessor of today’s Texas hold ’em dates from the beginning of the twentieth century. This was the first time the “board card” came onto the table. The first professional poker tournament took place in Nevada just half a century later. Today, playing poker at Casino Baden-Baden is the art of entertainment, feeling and lifestyle – tradition and modernity.
