Double-hand Poker is a current game with ancient ancestry. Founded on the old Chinese domino game and the modern American adaptation of poker, Pai Gow poker bands together the eastern with the west in a fantastic game for starting players.

Pai Gow is a poker game that puts the gambler vs. the house, unlike nearly all other poker games that players wager with other players. By gambling against the dealer, beginner players do not have to fret about any other, more experienced individuals winning their money.

A further Pai Gow advantage is the generally slow game pace, newcomers are able to take their time and strategize without needing to make hasty decisions.

It’s also much simpler to wager on for a very long time with only a tiny bit of money since, to lose, each of your hands must be lower than both of the dealer’s hands.

Pai Gow uses 53 cards; the familiar 52-card basic deck and one joker. The gambler is assigned 7 cards faces showing and the casino gets 7 cards faces hidden.

A five card hand and one two card hand have to be put together from the 7 cards, the 5 card hand must be better than the 2 card hand. To succeed, a player needs both of his hand totals to be better than the houses.
