Double-hand Poker is a modern game with ancient origins. Based on the old Chinese tile game and the current American variation of poker, Pai Gow poker joins the eastern with the west in an excellent game for new players.

Pai Gow is a poker game that puts the gambler vs. the casino, unlike nearly all other poker games that players bet with other players. By gambling against the dealer, new players do not have to be concerned about any other, more skillful players winning their moolla.

Another Pai Gow benefit is the generally leisurely game play, beginners are able to take their time and scheme without having to make frenzied choices.

It’s also easier to participate in for a long time with just a small amount of cash since, to not win, both of your hands must be under both of the houses hands.

Pai Gow uses 53 cards; the familiar 52-card standard deck and one joker. The gambler is dealt seven cards face up and the croupier gets 7 cards face down.

One five card hand and a two card hand must be put together from the 7 cards, the five card hand must be stronger than the two card hand. To succeed, a player needs both of his hand totals to be larger than the dealer’s.
