What is Tube Poker?
Ever sat on an underground train and felt you were being watched? You might have been an unsuspecting participant in a game of Tube Poker, the gambling phenomenon that's sweeping the globe.
This is Poker with a difference - cards are replaced by people. Whether male or female, young or old, everyone is worth a certain value. The game can be played by two opposing players on any train with five seats in a row.
Originating in Japan in the late 80's as "Subway Poker" and tightly controlled by crime syndicates, the game has subsequently spread to many major cities around the world.
