In the early days of the internet, real time communication was a challenge. The internet was mostly used to transmit large packets of information from one computer to another. Jarkko Oikarinen, an internet visionary, saw a diffenent use. He created IRC, or Internet Relay Chat, in 1988. IRC was the first instant messaging system. As soon as two people could communicate effectively online, players saw many applications for their favorite games, and soon afterward online poker began to be played over IRC. There were just ASCII graphics and no real money poker sites, but IRC poker was the predecessor of something big.
