Beginners Tactics for Pai Gow Poker

January 21st, 2016 Leave a comment Go to comments

Double-hand Poker is a modern game with ancient origins. Founded on the ancient Chinese tile game and the current American version of poker, Pai Gow poker combines the eastern with the wild west in an awesome game for beginning level players.

Pai Gow is a poker game that puts the gambler against the casino, unlike nearly all other poker games that players compete against other players. By gambling against the dealer, beginning players do not have to worry about other, more experienced gamblers taking their money.

One more Pai Gow advantage is the fairly leisurely game pace, newcomers are able to take their time and strategize while not needing to make frenzied selections.

It’s also easier to gamble on for a long time with only a tiny amount of money after all, to not win, both of your hands needs to be under each of the houses hands.

Pai Gow uses 53 cards; the familiar 52-card standard deck and one joker. The gambler is assigned seven cards face up and the croupier receives seven cards faces hidden.

One 5 card hand and one two card hand need to be put together from the 7 cards, the five card hand must be higher than the two card hand. To win, a player is required to have both of his hand values to be larger than the dealer’s.
