Double-hand Poker is a current game with ancient origins. Founded on the ancient Chinese domino game and the modern American variation of poker, Pai Gow poker marries the far east with the western in an awesome game for new gamblers.

Pai Gow is a poker game that puts the gambler vs. the croupier, not like nearly all other poker games that gamblers wager against other players. By betting against the dealer, starting players don’t need to worry about any other, more skillful people taking their $$$$.

One more Pai Gow edge is the relatively slow game pace, beginners can take their time and scheme while not having to make hasty choices.

It is also easier to participate in for a very long time with basically a little amount of money after all, to lose, each of your hands has to be under each of the casino’s hands.

Pai Gow is played with 53 cards; the familiar 52-card common deck and one joker. The gambler is assigned seven cards faces showing and the casino is dealt 7 cards face down.

One 5 card hand and a 2 card hand need to be made from the seven cards, the five card hand must be stronger than the two card hand. To succeed, a player is required to have both of his hand totals to be higher than the dealer’s.
