A Former Dutch territory, the island of Aruba is located near Venezuela. It would obviously be possible to probe the local population of only 100,000 inhabitants, although the creator of the Caribbean Poker could very well be a traveler or a stranger, since the small island has been widely open to tourism in the last twenty years. According to our sources, the game was based in the Holiday Inn & Casino, in the late 1980s.

It was in memory of this that the Holiday Inn & Casino was chosen to host the World Series of Poker in 2005.
