Poker is tightly woven into the fabric of American culture. Phrases like "ace in the hole", "calling a bluff", "up the ante", and "when the chips are down" are all part of everyday speech. The game is played by hundred of thousands of people online 24 hours a day, and shows like Celebrity Poker Showdown have given this hobby even more far-reaching exposure.
