Poker is a game of confidence. It is a game of strategy. It is a game of mischief, luck, taking risks, staying calm and collected, calculation, and believe it or not, poker is family friend entertainment for people of all ages. Coming from a chinese family, we keep it a tradition to play poker every chinese new year with friends and relatives, it is a deeply wholesome time that everyone looks forward to every year. It proves that poker does not require a large sum of money in order for it to be enjoyable, some people play with only coins and it’s the same amount of fun. It’s about the communion, battle of wits between familiars, that makes the game. Even though poker stems from western culture, the fact it is so commonly enjoyed even in Asia has shown that poker is indeed a powerful tool to bring people from all places that share vastly different cultural backgrounds together. Unfortunately, due to the game being stereotyped as a gangster’s past time, the image of poker has been severely damaged since its invention — but luckily, not to the point where it’s irreparable. Be it visiting the casinos, or participating in a poker table online with a mobile phone, poker has evolved into a casual past-time suitable for any time of day. Indeed, by making poker and, hence, the entire culture that surrounds gambling the norm via education, writing and sharing news, we can help reduce the social stigma or even eliminate it in the long run.
