Double-hand Poker is a current game with old ancestry. Based on the ancient Chinese tile game and the modern American variation of poker, Pai Gow poker bands together the eastern with the wild west in an awesome game for early level players.

Pai Gow is a poker game that puts the gambler against the croupier, not like nearly all other poker games that players compete with other gamblers. By competing against the dealer, starting players don’t have to fret about any other, more knowledgeable individuals winning their cash.

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

It is also easier to enjoy for a very long time with just a tiny amount of money seeing as, to not win, both of your hands needs to be under both of the dealer’s hands.

Pai Gow is played with 53 cards; the familiar 52-card common deck and one joker. The gambler is assigned seven cards face up and the croupier receives 7 cards face down.

One five card hand and a 2 card hand need to be put together from the seven cards, the five card hand has to be higher than the 2 card hand. To succeed, a player needs both of his hand values to be larger than the casino’s.
