Pai Gow Poker is a current game with old ancestry. Built on the ancient Chinese domino game and the current American variation of poker, Pai Gow poker combines the far east with the wild west in an excellent game for starting players.
Pai Gow is a poker game that pits the gambler against the dealer, not like the majority of other poker games that gamblers play with other gamblers. By betting against the dealer, beginning players do not have to be concerned about other, more knowledgeable individuals winning their moolla.
Another Pai Gow edge is the fairly slow game play, rookies can take their time and plan without needing to make hasty decisions.
It is also much simpler to bet on for a very long time with only a small bit of cash seeing as, to lose, both of your hands needs to be under both of the houses hands.
Pai Gow uses 53 cards; the customary 52-card basic deck and a single joker. The player is assigned 7 cards face up and the dealer gets 7 cards face down.
One 5 card hand and one 2 card hand need to be put together 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 values to be better than the casino’s.
