Songs For Poker Night

It's been a long while since I've hosted a good poker game. When I was involved in a regular game I would always bring some beer and a playlist. The mix was always focused on trying to keep everyone in the group happy. A playlist tradition that formed out of my poker night playlists was mixing in "The Gambler" by Kenny Rogers. Whenever that song came up during the game everyone would have to through a dollar into the pot. For this playlist I've put together 26 songs that are poker related. There's a good chance that some of these tracks will make fine additions to your next poker night playlist. Good luck, I hope you come home with more money than you left with, and if not, at least you have some poker tunage to help you through it.
