Poker had been legal in Las Vegas since 1931, but Texas hold'em was nowhere to be seen until McCorquodale introduced the game to the town.
He was a respected no-limit player in his career. Since McCorquodale’s death in 1968, Texas Hold ‘em has now become one of the most popular forms of the game in the world.
