Pai Gow Poker Game Rules
April 10th, 2010 by Miranda

Let us learn a diverse sort of poker other than Texas holdem, 7 card stud, 5 card draw and Omaha. Yes, double-hand poker. Now you must be wondering that double-hand sounds a little Chinese; yes you’re correct this casino game is a mixture of the Chinese game pai-gow and our very own US poker. Certainly this is not one of the most popular forms of poker but still it is widely wagered. It is usually bet by up to 7 gamblers.

It is bet with one deck of fifty two cards, including a joker. Strangely enough, the joker can be utilized only as an ace, to finish a straight, a flush, a straight flush, or a royal flush. The crucial thing here to remember is other than the normal rating of hands we have one more succeeding hand that’s "5 Aces" (5 aces which includes the joker). Surprisingly, five aces beat all other hands which includes royal flush.

Every single gambler is dealt seven cards. The cards are set up to make two hands; a 2 card hand and a 5 card hand. The 5 card hand must rank greater or be equal to the two card hand. Finally both of your hands have to rank higher than each of your oppositions hands (each five and two card hands). Further the two card hand can merely have 2 combinations; one pair and high card.

Soon after the cards are organized in to 2 hands, they’re positioned on the table face down. As soon as you put them down, you may no longer handle them. The croupier will turn over his cards and make his hands. Each and every gamblers hand is compared to the dealer’s hands. If the gambler wins 1 hand and manages to lose the other, this is identified as "push" and no money is exchanged. If croupier wins each hands then he/she captures the gamblers wager and the other way round. Now what if there is a tie, the only advantage with the croupier here is he/she wins all ties.

Right after the hand is bet, the following person clock-wise becomes the croupier and the subsequent hand is bet. The major disadvantage to this casino game is that there’s no talent involved and you rely too much on good fortune. Also the chances are terrible compared to betting with a pot.
