This entry should probably have a primary name of "Poker Squares". While the first sentence indicates this as a name variant, the 1949 edition of "The Complete Book of Solitaire & Patience Games" by Albert H. Morehead & Geoffrey Mott-Smith (reprinted in 1977, ISBN 0-533-20621-4) indicates a primary name of "Poker Squares" with a variant name "Poker Solitaire". While "Poker Square" has become a modern variant name, historically this game is correctly titled "Poker Squares".

Thus, I proposed the reversal of the "Poker Square"/"Poker Squares" primary/variant name roles on this page to reflect historical game rule literature. Todd (talk) 01:17, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

Further support from http://www.solitairecentral.com/history.html : "Among more recent publications, The Complete book of Solitaire and Patience Games by Albert Morehead and Geoffrey Mott-Smith, first published in 1949, and still in print to this day, and David Parlett's Penguin Book of Patience are the most popular and authoritative references to solitaire games."
