Double-hand Poker is a modern game with ancient origins. Built on the ancient Chinese domino game and the current American variation of poker, Pai Gow poker joins the far east with the western in a great game for starting players.

Pai Gow is a poker game that puts the player versus the dealer, not like almost all other poker games that gamblers compete with other gamblers. By competing against the dealer, new players do not need to worry about other, more knowledgeable players winning their mulla.

Another Pai Gow advantage is the fairly leisurely game pace, beginners are able to take their time and plan without needing to make quick choices.

It is also simpler to wager on for a long time with basically a small amount of money seeing as, to not win, both of your hands has to be lower than each of the casino’s hands.

Pai Gow uses 53 cards; the regular 52-card basic deck and one joker. The gambler is assigned seven cards face up and the house receives 7 cards faces hidden.

One five card hand and one two card hand have to be made from the seven cards, the 5 card hand has to be stronger than the 2 card hand. To win, a player is required to have both of his hand values to be larger than the casino’s.
