Pai Gow Poker is a modern game with old origins. Founded on the ancient Chinese domino game and the modern American adaptation of poker, Pai Gow poker combines the far east with the wild west in an excellent game for new gamblers.
Pai Gow is a poker game that pits the gambler vs. the casino, not like the majority of other poker games that players play against other players. By betting against the dealer, new players don’t have to worry about other, more knowledgeable players winning their money.
Another Pai Gow advantage is the fairly leisurely game pace, rookies are able to take their time and strategize without having to make quick decisions.
It’s also simpler to participate in for an extended time with just a tiny bit of money seeing as, to lose, both of your hands has to be lower than both of the casino’s hands.
Pai Gow is played with 53 cards; the customary 52-card basic deck and a single joker. The player is assigned 7 cards faces showing and the dealer is given 7 cards faces hidden.
A five card hand and a 2 card hand need to be made from the seven cards dealt, the five card hand has to be better than the two card hand. To win, a player needs both of his hand totals to be higher than the houses.
