Let’s learn a diverse sort of poker other than Texas holdem, seven card stud, 5 card draw and Omaha. Yes, pai gow poker. Now you need to be wondering that pai gow sounds a bit Chinese; yes you are proper this casino game is a combination of the Chinese game double-hand and our very own US poker. Surely this isn’t one of the most popular types of poker but still it’s widely wagered. It could be bet by up to seven gamblers.

It is played with 1 deck of fifty-two cards, including a joker. Strangely enough, the joker may be used only as an ace, to finish a straight, a flush, a straight flush, or a royal flush. The important thing here to keep in mind is apart from the usual ranking of hands we have 1 more winning hand that is "Five Aces" (five aces which includes the joker). Amazingly, five aces defeat all other hands including royal flush.

Every gambler is dealt seven cards. The cards are set up to make two hands; a 2 card hand and a 5 card hand. The five card hand has to rank greater or be equal to the 2 card hand. Finally each of your hands have to rank higher than both of your opponents hands (each 5 and 2 card hands). Further the two card hand can just have 2 permutations; 1 pair and high card.

After the cards are organized in to 2 hands, they are placed on the table face down. Once you place them down, you may no longer handle them. The croupier will flip over their cards and make their hands. Every single gamblers hand is in comparison to the dealer’s hands. If the gambler wins one hand and loses the other, this is recognized as "push" and no money is won or lost. If croupier wins both hands then they captures the players wager and the other way around. Now what if there is certainly a tie, the only advantage with the croupier here is they is victorious on all ties.

Soon after the hand is wagered, the next individual clock-wise becomes the croupier and the next hand is bet. The major drawback to this casino game is that there’s no ability involved and you depend too much on luck. Also the odds are inadequate compared to betting with a pot.
