The Old West is synonymous with many things:

  • Rugged individualism and expansion
  • Cowboys herding cattle.
  • Mining booms and busts
  • Gunfights and bar fights
  • Moonshine
  • Brave sheriffs were looking to tame some of the unsavoury aspects of this environment.

Poker was another major part of the Wild West. Miners flush with cash and cowboys on a layover during a cattle drive all looked for a bit of booze and card playing.

Many famous faces with Colt .45 in hand headed to the frontier with some wanderlust, looking to strike it rich at the poker table.
