Zynga is bringing popular its very popular poker app, Texas HoldEm Poker, to Google TV. Google TV will be the first set-top box platform to support the game, and with 30 million active monthly users across all platforms (Yahoo, Google+, Facebook, iOS and others), you can see why.

Google TV has been capable of supporting the app, as they support Flash-based websites which means you can already play Zynga games such as Texas HoldEm Poker already, but Zynga have said that the Google TV version announced today is "especially optimized for playing poker from the comfort of your own couch."

I think it's a great move. Imagine the future, playing poker from your own living room - with real money. I can see it now, motion controller based gaming, with Poker... using hand gestures for check, raise, all-in.
