Newcomer Tactics for Double-Hand Poker

February 10th, 2022 Leave a comment Go to comments

Pai Gow Poker is a current game with old origins. Based on the ancient Chinese domino game and the modern American variation of poker, Pai Gow poker bands together the far east with the west in a great game for starting gamblers.

Pai Gow is a poker game that puts the player versus the croupier, unlike almost all other poker games that gamblers compete against other players. By competing against the dealer, beginner players do not have to fret about other, more knowledgeable players winning their money.

One more Pai Gow benefit is the relatively slow game pace, newcomers should be able to take their time and strategize without having to make frenzied selections.

It is also much simpler to play for a long time with just a little amount of money since, to lose, both of your hands has to be under each of the casino’s hands.

Pai Gow uses 53 cards; the customary 52-card basic deck and one joker. The player is dealt seven cards faces showing and the croupier is dealt seven cards face down.

One five card hand and a 2 card hand must be put together from the seven cards, the five card hand must be stronger than the 2 card hand. To win, a player needs both of his hand totals to be higher than the dealer’s.
