Long Before Poker Became Cool

Poker At IU HomecomingThis pic just goes to show that 406 was well ahead of the curve when it comes to “cool”.  This picture was taken during Homecoming festivities in 2002.  I tell you, there’s nothing quite like an outdoor poker game during the festivities surrounded by your friends.

In retrospect, it actually shocks me that we were able to get away with this.  Not only were we obviously drinking on our cough cough dry campus, but we were obviously gambling as well.

People often point to Chris Moneymaker or the movie Rounders as the start of the poker boom… I like to think it was the fine folks at 406!
