The Evolution of Marked Cards and Poker Analyzers

The Evolution of Poker Analyzers and Marked Cards

The game has captured our national imagination. But why?

The answer is poker has evolved into a bluffing game. These elements are what make the game so captivating and fascinating.

Poker began as a simple game of parlor where 20 cards were dealt to four players. The winner was determined by who had the best matching pair or three or more cards of the same type. Over time, the game grew in popularity, and it was natural that it would attract eggheads like mathematician John von Neumann, who developed his 1928 article on the Theory of Parlor Games — a landmark development in gaming theory that has had profound implications for economic analysis.

Today, a deck of marked cards looks just like a regular card to the naked eye — but the hidden marking system makes the cards identifiable by poker analyzers. A poker analyzer scans a deck of playing cards and sends a signal via Bluetooth to the user, indicating who is winning each hand seat. There are different types of marked card available, including invisible ink contact cards, side barcode cards, and infrared cards.
