Texas Holdem Tournaments are the most interesting events in the world of poker, and they are very common in any national community of poker known on the Web. The popularity of this type of poker is easy to explain as it is the poker, which is classic for many years and it is the poker, which they use to give examples in books of poker and so on. There are some other variations of poker but they are less popular and that is why less known. If it were possible to compare the online response and model a situation where they offer to take part in Texas Holdem and, say, Tri-card poker tournaments, the former would gather a much bigger audience and queue of those, who would like to get enrolled.
This is the main reason why online gambling providers more and more often announce of free Holdem poker tournaments when invite everybody to take part in them. This is not because they like or dislike some other kind of poker, but just because Texas Holdem is the most popular one. This sole fact is like a bullet-proof bet, which wins always. Texas Holdem does not belong to a company, it is not a registered trademark, and this fact is the key to its success. If somebody ever tried to acquire the rights for poker, it would be a killing move for the popularity of Texas Holdem.
The same is also true when it comes to retailers: all of them know perfectly well that Holdem poker chips will stay in good demand forever, while, for example, anything with a label ‘Omaha Hi-Lo’ may be not very much successful. In fact, if something got popular in poker, it may be compared to some sort of gambling tradition, which is an obligation to everyone and everyone should respect it.
