Harding's twice-a-week games with members of his cabinet were probably more well known than most. In fact, his cabinet became known as the "poker cabinet" thanks to the ongoing game, which most report was highly competitive. President Warren G. Harding is remembered for several not-so-positive events during his presidency – one of which involves a set of china and a game of cards. If you are a fan of trivia nights, you will be familiar with the name Warren G. Harding. The 29th President of the United States was the shortest-serving president of the 20th century, one of only four presidents to die from natural causes during their presidency, and the only president to be elected into office on his birthday. At smoke-filled poker nights held twice a week, Abrams says the whiskey flowed freely, even by a guest’s pet monkey who poured a bottle all over Harding’s white suit. The scandals involving Harding. He was an ineffectual leader who played poker while his friends plundered the U.S. treasury. By Jay Tolson, Staff Writer Feb. 16, By Jay Tolson, Staff Writer Feb. 16, , at a.m. More. Warren Harding was a confirmed poker fan long before he entered the White House. While President, he played twice a week with assorted friends and members of his cabinet, including Attorney General Harry M. Daugherty, Secretary of War John W. Weeks and Interior Secretary Albert B. Fall.

Warren G. Harding was born in a farming community near Blooming Grove, Ohio, on November 2, He was the oldest of eight children.
Yet he remained involved in the Star , never ceding his financial interest in the paper until two months before his death in August While editing the Star , Harding was the target of personal attacks by the editor of a competing newspaper, the Independent.
Harding was elected to the Ohio State Senate in before taking office as lieutenant governor from to From to , he served in the U.
Along with running mate Coolidge, he defeated Democratic candidate James Cox by winning 60 percent of the popular vote and 76 percent of the Electoral College.
Though Harding himself was never implicated in any wrongdoing, his cabinet was embroiled in controversy. Secretary of the Interior Albert Fall was found to have leased public land to oil companies in exchange for gifts in the Teapot Dome Scandal.
Both Foraker and Hanna supported Harding for state Senate in ; he gained the Republican nomination and was easily elected to a two-year term.
Harding began his four years as a state senator as a political unknown; he ended them as one of the most popular figures in the Ohio Republican Party.
He always appeared calm and displayed humility, characteristics that endeared him to fellow Republicans even as he passed them in his political rise.
Legislative leaders consulted him on difficult problems. After the assassination of McKinley in September he was succeeded by Vice President Theodore Roosevelt , much of the appetite for politics was temporarily lost in Ohio.
In November, Harding won a second term, more than doubling his margin of victory to 3, votes. Like most politicians of his time, Harding accepted that patronage and graft would be used to repay political favors.
He arranged for his sister Mary who was legally blind to be appointed as a teacher at the Ohio School for the Blind , although there were better-qualified candidates.
In another trade, he offered publicity in his newspaper in exchange for free railroad passes for himself and his family.
According to Sinclair, "it is doubtful that Harding ever thought there was anything dishonest in accepting the perquisites of position or office.
Patronage and favors seemed the normal reward for party service in the days of Hanna. Soon after Harding's initial election as senator, he met Harry M.
Daugherty , who would take a major role in his political career. A perennial candidate for office who served two terms in the state House of Representatives in the early s, Daugherty had become a political fixer and lobbyist in the state capital of Columbus.
After first meeting and talking with Harding, Daugherty commented, "Gee, what a great-looking President he'd make.
In early , Harding announced he would run for Governor of Ohio , prompted by the withdrawal of the leading candidate, Congressman Charles W.
Hanna and George Cox felt that Harding was not electable due to his work with Foraker—as the Progressive Era commenced, the public was starting to take a dimmer view of the trading of political favors and of bosses such as Cox.
Accordingly, they persuaded Cleveland banker Myron T. Herrick , a friend of McKinley's, to run. Herrick was also better-placed to take votes away from the likely Democratic candidate, reforming Cleveland Mayor Tom L.
With little chance at the gubernatorial nomination, Harding sought nomination as lieutenant governor, and both Herrick and Harding were nominated by acclamation.
Herrick and Harding won by overwhelming margins. Once he and Harding were inaugurated, Herrick made ill-advised decisions that turned crucial Republican constituencies against him, alienating farmers by opposing the establishment of an agricultural college.
In early , Harding announced he would accept nomination as governor if offered, but faced with the anger of leaders such as Cox, Foraker and Dick Hanna's replacement in the Senate , announced he would seek no office in Herrick was defeated, but his new running mate, Andrew L.
Harris , was elected, and succeeded as governor after five months in office on the death of Democrat John M. In addition to helping pick a president, Ohio voters in were to choose the legislators who would decide whether to re-elect Foraker.
The senator had quarreled with President Roosevelt over the Brownsville Affair. Though Foraker had little chance of winning, he sought the Republican presidential nomination against his fellow Cincinnatian, Secretary of War William Howard Taft , who was Roosevelt's chosen successor.
Also helpful in saving Harding's career was the fact that he was popular with, and had done favors for, the more progressive forces that now controlled the Ohio Republican Party.
Harding sought and gained the Republican gubernatorial nomination. At that time, the party was deeply divided between progressive and conservative wings, and could not defeat the united Democrats; he lost the election to incumbent Judson Harmon.
Despite the growing rift between them, both President Taft and former president Roosevelt came to Ohio to campaign for Harding, but their quarrels split the Republican Party and helped assure Harding's defeat.
The party split grew, and in , Taft and Roosevelt were rivals for the Republican nomination. The Republican National Convention was bitterly divided.
At Taft's request, Harding gave a speech nominating the president, but the angry delegates were not receptive to Harding's oratory.
Taft was renominated, but Roosevelt supporters bolted the party. Harding, as a loyal Republican, supported Taft. The Republican vote was split between Taft, the party's official candidate, and Roosevelt, running under the label of the Progressive Party.
Congressman Theodore Burton had been elected as senator in Foraker's place in , and announced that he would seek a second term in the elections.
By this time, the Seventeenth Amendment to the United States Constitution had been ratified, giving the people the right to elect senators, and Ohio had instituted primary elections for the office.
Foraker and former congressman Ralph D. Cole also entered the Republican primary. When Burton withdrew, Foraker became the favorite, but his Old Guard Republicanism was deemed outdated, and Harding was urged to enter the race.
Daugherty claimed credit for persuading Harding to run, "I found him like a turtle sunning himself on a log, and I pushed him into the water.
It was calculated to offend nobody except Democrats. Harding won the primary by 12, votes over Foraker.
Slogan written on Ohio walls and fences, . Harding's general election opponent was Ohio Attorney General Timothy Hogan , who had risen to statewide office despite widespread prejudice against Roman Catholics in rural areas.
In , the start of World War I and the prospect of a Catholic senator from Ohio increased nativist sentiment. Harding did not attack Hogan an old friend on this or most other issues, but he did not denounce the nativist hatred for his opponent.
Harding's conciliatory campaigning style aided him;  one Harding friend deemed the candidate's stump speech during the fall campaign as "a rambling, high-sounding mixture of platitudes, patriotism, and pure nonsense".
When Harding joined the U. Senate, the Democrats controlled both houses of Congress, and were led by President Wilson. As a junior senator in the minority, Harding received unimportant committee assignments, but carried out those duties assiduously.
On two issues, women's suffrage, and the prohibition of alcohol, where picking the wrong side would have damaged his presidential prospects in , he prospered by taking nuanced positions.
As senator-elect, he indicated that he could not support votes for women until Ohio did. Increased support for suffrage there and among Senate Republicans meant that by the time Congress voted on the issue, Harding was a firm supporter.
Harding, who drank,  initially voted against banning alcohol. He voted for the Eighteenth Amendment , which imposed Prohibition , after successfully moving to modify it by placing a time limit on ratification, which was expected to kill it.
Once it was ratified anyway, Harding voted to override Wilson's veto of the Volstead Bill , which implemented the amendment, assuring the support of the Anti-Saloon League.
Harding, as a politician respected by both Republicans and Progressives, was asked to be temporary chairman of the Republican National Convention and to deliver the keynote address.
He urged delegates to stand as a united party. The convention nominated Justice Charles Evans Hughes. In the November presidential election , despite increasing Republican unity, Hughes was narrowly defeated by Wilson.
Harding spoke and voted in favor of the resolution of war requested by Wilson in April that plunged the United States into World War I. In May , Harding, less enthusiastic about Wilson, opposed a bill to expand the president's powers.
In the midterm congressional elections, held just before the armistice, Republicans narrowly took control of the Senate.
Many senators disliked Article X of the League Covenant , that committed signatories to the defense of any member nation that was attacked, seeing it as forcing the United States to war without the assent of Congress.
Harding was one of 39 senators who signed a round-robin letter opposing the League. When Wilson invited the Foreign Relations Committee to the White House to informally discuss the treaty, Harding ably questioned Wilson about Article X; the president evaded his inquiries.
The Senate debated Versailles in September , and Harding made a major speech against it. By then, Wilson had suffered a stroke while on a speaking tour.
With an incapacitated president in the White House and less support in the country, the treaty was defeated. With most Progressives having rejoined the Republican Party, their former leader, Theodore Roosevelt, was deemed likely to make a third run for the White House in , and was the overwhelming favorite for the Republican nomination.
These plans ended when Roosevelt suddenly died on January 6, Harding, while he wanted to be president, was as much motivated in entering the race by his desire to keep control of Ohio Republican politics, enabling his re-election to the Senate in Among those coveting Harding's seat were former governor Willis he had been defeated by James M.
On December 17, , Harding made a low-key announcement of his presidential candidacy. Harding was far more acceptable to the "Old Guard" leaders of the party.
Daugherty, who became Harding's campaign manager, was sure none of the other candidates could garner a majority. His strategy was to make Harding an acceptable choice to delegates once the leaders faltered.
Daugherty established a Harding for president campaign office in Washington run by his confidant, Jess Smith , and worked to manage a network of Harding friends and supporters, including Frank Scobey of Texas clerk of the Ohio State Senate during Harding's years there.
Despite the candidate's work, according to Russell, "without Daugherty's Mephistophelean efforts, Harding would never have stumbled forward to the nomination.
Warren G. There were only 16 presidential primary states in , of which the most crucial to Harding was Ohio. Harding had to have some loyalists at the convention to have any chance of nomination, and the Wood campaign hoped to knock Harding out of the race by taking Ohio.
Wood campaigned in the state, and his supporter, Procter, spent large sums; Harding spoke in the non-confrontational style he had adopted in Harding and Daugherty were so confident of sweeping Ohio's 48 delegates that the candidate went on to the next state, Indiana, before the April 27 Ohio primary.
In Indiana, Harding finished fourth, with less than ten percent of the vote, and failed to win a single delegate.
He was willing to give up and have Daugherty file his re-election papers for the Senate, but Florence Harding grabbed the phone from his hand, "Warren Harding, what are you doing?
Give up? Not until the convention is over. Think of your friends in Ohio! After he recovered from the shock of the poor results, Harding traveled to Boston, where he delivered a speech that according to Dean, "would resonate throughout the campaign and history.
The Republican National Convention opened at the Chicago Coliseum on June 8, , assembling delegates who were bitterly divided, most recently over the results of a Senate investigation into campaign spending, which had just been released.
Johnson was deemed to be behind the inquiry, and the rage of the Lowden and Wood factions put an end to any possible compromise among the frontrunners.
Of the almost 1, delegates, 27 were women—the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution , guaranteeing women the vote, was within one state of ratification, and would pass before the end of August.
Reporters deemed Harding unlikely to be nominated due to his poor showing in the primaries, and relegated him to a place among the dark horses. After the convention dealt with other matters, the nominations for president opened on the morning of Friday, June Harding had asked Willis to place his name in nomination, and the former governor responded with a speech popular among the delegates, both for its folksiness and for its brevity in the intense Chicago heat.
Harry M. Daugherty . Four ballots were taken on the afternoon of June 11, and they revealed a deadlock.
The night of June 11—12, , would become famous in political history as the night of the " smoke-filled room. Daugherty , Harding's political manager was the mastermind.
On February 11, , long before the convention, Daugherty predicted:. Daugherty's prediction described essentially what occurred, but historians argue that Daugherty's prediction has been given too much weight in narratives of the convention.
For six hours the leaders considered numerous alternatives, including Wood, Lowden, and Johnson. However, there were objections to all of them.
Headlines in the next morning newspapers suggested intrigue. Historian Wesley M. Bagby argues, "Various groups actually worked along separate lines to bring about the nomination—without combination and with very little contact.
The reassembled delegates had heard rumors that Harding was the choice of a cabal of senators. Although this was not true, delegates believed it, and sought a way out by voting for Harding.
Lodge then declared a three-hour recess, to the outrage of Daugherty, who raced to the podium, and confronted him, "You cannot defeat this man this way!
The motion was not carried! You cannot defeat this man! The nomination was made unanimous. The delegates, desperate to leave town before they incurred more hotel expenses, then proceeded to the vice presidential nomination.
Harding wanted Senator Irvine Lenroot of Wisconsin, who was unwilling to run, but before Lenroot's name could be withdrawn and another candidate decided on, an Oregon delegate proposed Governor Coolidge, which was met with a roar of approval from the delegates.
Coolidge, popular for his role in breaking the Boston police strike of , was nominated for vice president, receiving two and a fraction votes more than Harding had.
On such things, Rollo, turns the destiny of nations. The New York World found Harding the least-qualified candidate since James Buchanan , deeming the Ohio senator a "weak and mediocre" man who "never had an original idea.
The Democratic National Convention opened in San Francisco on June 28, , under a shadow cast by Woodrow Wilson, who wished to be nominated for a third term.
In einer Zeit, die von rassistischen Vorurteilen geprägt war, wurde somit eine Rufmordkampagne betrieben. Spätere Nachforschungen ergaben keine Hinweise auf afrikanische Vorfahren.
Der zweite Ku-Klux-Klan gewann nach seiner Gründung zunehmend an Popularität und politischer Macht, insbesondere unter anderem in Ohio, der Heimat Hardings, und befand sich während der Roaring Twenties auf dem Höhepunkt seines gesellschaftlichen Einflusses.
Harding sprach sich im Gegensatz zu anderen Politikern seiner Zeit gegen rassistische Theorien aus und verurteilte die Gewalt gegen Minderheiten ohne den Namen des KKK explizit zu nennen.
Möglicherweise sei das Gerücht also von verärgerten Mitgliedern des Klan in die Welt gesetzt worden. Zu dieser Zeit begann die Korruptionsaffäre um seine Kabinettsmitglieder bekannt zu werden.
In Alaska erreichte ihn eine Mitteilung, in der illegale Aktivitäten detailliert geschildert wurden, worüber Harding sichtlich schockiert war.

These bots cause others that actually play the games legally , to lose out on things they may want to do. They effect the payouts and game economy.
Because IJJI decided they wanted to lose several thousand members. An especially unnecessary gambit when playing strip poker. No you can not lose a game point in Ping Pong if it is the last point.
You can not lose the game on a serve. You can not "declare" that you have the winning hand in poker either. Everything is decided on the showdown.
To win the pot. I must Disagree, If you picked poker players at random and asked them about the objective of poker, most would say something about winning the pot, but they couldn't be further from the truth.
The objective of poker - in addition to the enjoyment of playing the game -is winning money, not pots. If your objective of poker was to win the most pots, that would be easy to do.
Just play every hand and every bet and raise until the bitter end. You'd win a lot of pots. In fact, you'd win every pot you possibly could.
But you'd lose money.
