If there were any doubts about poker maintaining its popularity this year, they were dispelled with Lycos' release of its top 50 search terms for 2007. For the second year in a row, poker tops the list.

Lycos compiles a weekly list of top searched words on its site. Poker first made its appearance on the year-end list in 2004 as the 10th-most-searched term. In 2005 it climbed to fourth place for the year.

Poker returned to dominate the search lists again in 2007.
