Double-hand Poker is a current game with old ancestry. Based on the ancient Chinese domino game and the modern American variation of poker, Pai Gow poker combines the east with the west in a fantastic game for starting gamblers.

Pai Gow is a poker game that pits the player vs. the croupier, not like the majority of other poker games that players wager with other players. By competing against the dealer, beginning players don’t need to fret about any other, more skillful gamblers taking their $$$$.

An additional Pai Gow edge is the fairly slow game play, novices should be able to take their time and strategize while not needing to make quick choices.

It is also simpler to enjoy for a long time with just a little bit of money seeing as, to not win, each of your hands needs to be under each of the casino’s hands.

Pai Gow is played with 53 cards; the regular 52-card standard deck and a single joker. The player is assigned 7 cards face up and the house is given seven cards faces hidden.

A five card hand and one two card hand have to be made from the 7 cards, the five card hand must be better than the 2 card hand. To succeed, a player needs both of his hand values to be larger than the casino’s.
