As others have mentioned, you need to compile these documents using TeX 
+DVI, not pdflatex. But there's an error in the poker.sty file itself:  
it assumes an older version of pstricks.

To get the documentation to compile, either change all instances of  
\scaleboxto to \psscaleboxto in poker.sty, or add


to the preamble of any document you compile with the original sty file.
