Full House: High-Stakes Poker Is Packing Casinos and Making a Run on TV is an article written by Peter Genovese from Newhouse News Service.

Here's a bit: "Poker has been played in kitchens, living rooms and smoke-filled back rooms for hundreds of years. In William Faulkner's "Go Down Moses," a character refers to the game as "the most serious foolishness you ever took part in your life." Movies like "The Cincinnati Kid" and "From Here to Eternity" have captured the thrill, excitement, even danger of poker."
