President Warren Harding and Poker

The 29th U.S. President Loved the Game

By

Warren Harding was a great lover of the game of poker. So much so, in fact, he played at least twice a week. His advisors got the nickname "the poker cabinet" because they played with the President.

Rumors say that Harding once lost an entire set of White House China playing poker, but that story is up for debate.
