The history of Texas Holdem poker originated in Robstown - Texas, in the early 1900s. It was first played on ranches by cattlemen and the game derives from "seven card stud", the most popular poker game at the time.

Texas Holdem is a variation of seven card stud and is played for high only. The game was created to make the game go faster and to allow a maximum number of players to participate using a 52 card deck only.

Through all the different theories on the history of Texas Holdem poker, legend has it that almost all of the cattlemen on a ranch wanted to play seven card stud one night but there where not enough card decks available to let everyone participate.

They solved this problem by only dealing each player two pocket cards, instead of five, and all players had to share five cards dealt face up in the middle of the table (community cards).
