Playing cards is one of the pastime activities that people spend time in everyday life. Now, there are 54 playing cards, which are made up of spades, red peaches, square, plum, and size kings. The sources of poker have always been different. There are all the earliest origins of poker in Egypt, India, and Billy. But in the theory of the origin of poker, two views have been affirmed by historians.
At first, poker is a tool used for divination. In poker cards, four colors, except for the size king, are different. "Spades" resembles olive leaves, symbolizing peace and peace. "Red peach" is like a red heart, symbolizing love and wisdom "plum blossom" like four leaf grass, thus implying happiness; "square" has a corner symbolizing gemstones, meaning wealth. Later, this way of divination evolved into entertainment.
Another view is that poker games are evolved by astronomical chronograph. The size kings in the cards represent the sun and the moon, and the other 52 cards represent 52 weeks in one year, respectively, in the spring, summer, autumn and winter with 4 kinds of spades, red peaches, plum blossoms and squares. Each color is 13, respectively, for a quarter. In the 13 week, the number of points added is the number of days in the first quarter.
In the Qin and Han Dynasties, there was a popular "leaf card" game, which historians thought was the embryonic form of poker. Around the 13th century, card games were introduced into Europe. In the 16th century, the "winning card" game was very popular in the West. It was not until the 19th century that modern poker began to take shape.
