Pai Gow Poker is a current game with ancient ancestry. Built on the old Chinese tile game and the modern American variation of poker, Pai Gow poker marries the far east with the western in a wonderful game for beginner level gamblers.

Pai Gow is a poker game that puts the gambler against the house, unlike most other poker games that players play with other gamblers. By competing against the dealer, beginning players don’t need to worry about any other, more advanced individuals taking their $$$$.

A further Pai Gow advantage is the relatively leisurely game play, beginners will be able to take their time and strategize while not having to make hasty choices.

It is also much simpler to bet on for an extended time with just a little amount of cash seeing as, to lose, each of your hands has to be under each of the dealer’s hands.

Pai Gow uses 53 cards; the normal 52-card basic deck and a single joker. The gambler is given 7 cards faces showing and the dealer is given 7 cards face down.

One five card hand and one 2 card hand have to be made from the 7 cards dealt, the five card hand has to be stronger than the 2 card hand. To succeed, a player needs both of his hand totals to be higher than the dealer’s.
