Double-hand Poker is a modern game with old origins. Based on the old Chinese tile game and the current American version of poker, Pai Gow poker bands together the far east with the western in an awesome game for new players.

Pai Gow is a poker game that pits the gambler against the dealer, unlike almost all other poker games that gamblers bet against other gamblers. By gambling against the dealer, beginner players don’t have to worry about any other, more knowledgeable people taking their $$$$.

Another Pai Gow benefit is the fairly slow game pace, rookies are able to take their time and scheme without having to make quick decisions.

It is also easier to enjoy for an extended time with basically a little bit of money seeing as, to lose, both of your hands needs to be lower than both of the casino’s hands.

Pai Gow uses 53 cards; the regular 52-card basic deck and one joker. The player is dealt 7 cards face up and the house is given 7 cards faces hidden.

A 5 card hand and a two card hand must be made from the 7 cards, the five card hand must be higher than the two card hand. To win, a player is required to have both of his hand totals to be better than the casino’s.
