Newcomer Schemes for Double-Hand Poker

Pai Gow Poker is a cutting-edge game with ancient ancestry. Founded on the old Chinese domino game and the current American adaptation of poker, Pai Gow poker bands together the far east with the western in an excellent game for early level gamblers.

Pai Gow is a poker game that pits the gambler vs. the croupier, not like the majority of other poker games that gamblers compete against other players. By gambling against the dealer, beginning players do not need to worry about any other, more experienced players taking their mulla.

An additional Pai Gow advantage is the generally slow game pace, beginners should be able to take their time and plan while not needing to make frenzied choices.

It’s also easier to play for a long time with just a small amount of money after all, to not win, each of your hands has to be lower than each of the houses hands.

Pai Gow uses 53 cards; the familiar 52-card standard deck and a single joker. The player is dealt seven cards faces showing and the croupier gets seven cards faces hidden.

A five card hand and one 2 card hand must be put together from the 7 cards dealt, the 5 card hand has to be higher than the two card hand. To win, a player needs both of his hand values to be better than the casino’s.
