Pokeri noodles are very knowledgeable
When you mention poker, your first reaction is the magical poker in the movies "God of Gambling" and "King of Poker", or the entertainment tool that brings us joy after dinner? Poker is the most popular and grassroots entertainment. Everyone has played poker, but where does it come from? There are different opinions about the origin of poker, but a more concentrated statement is that modern poker originated from the "leaf play" in China.
The earliest record of "Yezi Opera" can be found in Su Ying's "Wechsler Schools" in Princess Tongchang's Biography of Tang Dynasty, which is good for Yezi Opera. According to textual research, Zhang Sui, a famous writer of Tang Dynasty, invented "Yezi Opera". This kind of card is mainly for Xuanzong and Gonge to play, because the card is only as big as the leaf, so it is called "Yezi Opera". Later, it was introduced into the folk and widely sought after by scholars and scholars.
"Leaf Opera" was introduced into Europe in the 13th century. After hundreds of years of evolution, it blended with the card games of foreign countries, and gradually formed the internationally recognized card model - poker. And poker is divided into five systems: West, France, Germany and Switzerland. We play the most popular French poker in the world. According to statistics, there are more than 1000 kinds of playing methods of poker. There are no less than 200 kinds of playing methods popular in the world, among which "bridge" has become a regular international competition.
An expert explained with interest the hidden scientific knowledge of poker: there are four seasons in a year, spring, summer, autumn and winter, Poker has four kinds of colors, black red plum square. King represents the sun, Xiao Wang represents the moon. Three months a quarter and 13 weeks a quarter correspond to the number of cards in each pattern. Add up the corner codes A-K of all poker cards, and each pattern has 91 points, which is exactly the same number of days per quarter. Four colors 364 points, each half point, a total of 365 points, corresponding to 365 days a year, while in leap year, the king and the king were counted as 1 point, a total of 366 points.
Poker collection market is good
Mr. Bai, a poker collector, used four words to recall his first collection of poker: "Still fresh in memory".
In 1979, he accidentally got a set of fancy poker, 54 cards with different patterns. Poker in those days were all digital, while fancy poker was rare. The Dunhuang flying sky pattern on poker is very beautiful. He liked this pair of poker immediately after he got it. For him, it can't be used as an entertainment tool. More than 30 years later, his poker set is still very complete. From this pair of poker, he consciously searched for the fancy poker collection. At that time, he paid 40 yuan a month and bought a pair of poker for 500 yuan, which seemed incomprehensible to others.
The price of a deck of poker during the Cultural Revolution now ranges from 20,000 to 60,000 yuan. During this period, most of the poker products were trial products, with few varieties and small print. In addition, people did not have too much sense of collection and poker was easily lost, and many other factors, which can be preserved to this day is quite precious. Now every pair found is very valuable.
In western countries, the history of poker collections can be traced back to the 15th century. At present, in European and American countries, there are quite a number of poker collections, whether private or public, and some of them use the face of poker as part of their art collection.
Compared with Western countries, the history of collecting poker in China is not long. Although there were a few people collecting poker in the Republic of China, they did not have full influence. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, Chinese poker collections sprouted, and some card players began to collect poker consciously. Since the 1990s, the number of collectors has gradually increased, and the "China Poker Collection" newspaper has appeared, and related poker activities have sprung up like mushrooms.
After entering the 21st century, the entertainment, knowledge and ornamentation of poker have become more and more obvious. With the extensive mass base, poker collection has developed rapidly. There are 17 branches in China's poker Museum alone, and the number of art poker collectors in China has risen to 150,000. According to the data, there are now 16 provincial-level professional poker collecting institutions in China, including about 40 listed-level collecting units.
Poker converges into an encyclopedia
In addition, "theme poker" is also the focus of various Tibetans. Theme poker refers to poker cards which are designed and printed with different patterns on the front of the card according to a certain theme. These poker cards are different from the traditional human head cards.
Chinese theme Poker has a history of 50 years since the printing of a batch of poker such as "Water Margin Person" in the late 1950s. The poker with the theme of "Character Cartoon" combines the artistic features of portrait caricature with the game functions of poker, thus giving poker a new aesthetic interest; the theme is "Famous Chinese Mountains".
