“THE MONDAY LINK”


Did you know that many American Presidents have also loved a good game of poker?

Martin Harris in his post for PokerStarsNews, covered the many presidents who enjoyed a good card game, saying “Poker is a great reveal of character, a truism that applies to Presidents as well as to lesser men.”

Did you know:

  • Before becoming the country’s first president, George Washington gambled at cards, keeping close records of wins and losses on a page in a ledger book titled “Cards and Other Play.”
  • Theodore Roosevelt used poker as a way to gain entry into social circles while moving up through the ranks to the vice presidency.
  • No president had a special dedication to poker the nation’s 29th president — Warren G. Harding. Harding hosted poker games twice a week with members of his administration, earning them the nickname the “Poker Cabinet.”
  • Franklin Delano Roosevelt  brought back the poker-playing tradition during his administration with low-stakes games several times a week, often nickel-ante stud.

So, this week’s Monday’s Link combines President’s Day and Gambling with this post by Martin Harris.  Enjoy!
