Double-hand Poker is a current game with old ancestry. Based on the ancient Chinese domino game and the modern American variation of poker, Pai Gow poker joins the far east with the west in a fantastic game for starting players.

Pai Gow is a poker game that puts the gambler against the croupier, unlike nearly all other poker games that players play against other gamblers. By wagering against the dealer, starting players do not have to worry about any other, more skillful gamblers taking their cash.

Another Pai Gow benefit is the fairly leisurely game pace, rookies can take their time and strategize without having to make quick decisions.

It is also easier to participate in for a very long time with basically a little bit of cash since, to lose, both of your hands has to be under both of the casino’s hands.

Pai Gow uses 53 cards; the regular 52-card standard deck and a single joker. The gambler is given seven cards faces showing and the casino is dealt 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 stronger than the 2 card hand. To win, a player needs both of his hand totals to be better than the casino’s.
