Amateurs Course of Action for Double-Hand Poker

Pai Gow Poker is a cutting-edge game with ancient ancestry. Based on the ancient Chinese domino game and the modern American adaptation of poker, Pai Gow poker joins the east with the western in a great game for beginner level players.

Pai Gow is a poker game that puts the gambler against the dealer, not like nearly all other poker games that gamblers compete with other gamblers. By competing against the dealer, beginning players don’t need to be concerned about other, more advanced people winning their money.

Another Pai Gow benefit is the fairly leisurely game play, rookies can take their time and plan while not having to make quick decisions.

It’s also much simpler to wager on for a very long time with just a little bit of money seeing as, to lose, each of your hands must be lower than both of the casino’s hands.

Pai Gow is played with 53 cards; the regular 52-card basic deck and a single joker. The player is assigned 7 cards faces showing and the croupier is given seven cards face down.

One 5 card hand and one 2 card hand have to be put together from the seven cards dealt, the five card hand has to be stronger than the two card hand. To win, a player needs both of his hand values to be better than the houses.
