Double-hand Poker is a modern game with ancient origins. Based on the old Chinese domino game and the modern American variation of poker, Pai Gow poker bands together the eastern with the western in an awesome game for beginner level gamblers.

Pai Gow is a poker game that pits the player against the croupier, unlike almost all other poker games that players wager with other gamblers. By wagering against the dealer, new players do not need to worry about other, more skillful individuals taking their mulla.

An additional Pai Gow edge is the relatively leisurely game pace, novices can take their time and strategize without having to make hasty decisions.

It is also simpler to wager on for an extended time with only a tiny bit of cash since, to lose, each of your hands needs to be under both of the houses hands.

Pai Gow uses 53 cards; the regular 52-card common deck and one joker. The player is assigned 7 cards face up and the croupier receives 7 cards face down.

One five card hand and one two card hand must be put together from the seven cards, the 5 card hand must be higher than the 2 card hand. To win, a player is required to have both of his hand totals to be larger than the houses.
