Double-hand Poker is a cutting-edge game with old ancestry. Based on the old Chinese tile game and the modern American adaptation of poker, Pai Gow poker bands together the eastern with the west in a fantastic game for beginning level players.

Pai Gow is a poker game that pits the gambler against the casino, not like the majority of other poker games that players play against other gamblers. By betting against the dealer, beginning players don’t need to fret about other, more knowledgeable gamblers winning their cash.

A further Pai Gow advantage is the generally slow game play, beginners should be able to take their time and strategize while not having to make frenzied choices.

It is also much simpler to gamble on for a very long time with just a tiny bit of cash since, to not win, each of your hands has to be under both of the houses hands.

Pai Gow is played with 53 cards; the regular 52-card standard deck and a single joker. The gambler is given seven cards faces showing and the dealer is given 7 cards faces hidden.

One five card hand and one 2 card hand need to be made from the seven cards dealt, the five card hand has to be better than the 2 card hand. To win, a player is required to have both of his hand values to be better than the casino’s.
