Let’s learn a various sort of poker other than holdem, five card stud, 5 card draw and Omaha Hold’em. Yes, double-hand poker. Now you ought to be wondering that double-hand sounds a bit Chinese; yes you are correct this game is really a mixture of the Chinese casino game pai-gow and our very own Yankee poker. Surely this is not 1 of the most popular styles of poker but still it is widely bet. It might be played by up to 7 gamblers.

It is played with 1 deck of fifty two cards, plus a joker. Curiously, the joker may be used only as an ace, to finish a straight, a flush, a straight flush, or a royal flush. The important element here to remember is other than the usual rating of hands we have 1 more succeeding hand that is "5 Aces" (5 aces including the joker). Amazingly, five aces beat all other hands including royal flush.

Every single gambler is dealt seven cards. The cards are arranged to make 2 hands; a 2 card hand and a five card hand. The five card hand has to rank greater or be equal to the 2 card hand. Finally both of your hands must rank greater than both of your competitors hands (each five and 2 card hands). Further the two card hand can just have two permutations; 1 pair and high card.

Right after the cards are arranged in to two hands, they are positioned on the table face down. As soon as you put them down, you can no longer touch them. The croupier will turn over his cards and make his hands. Every players hand is compared to the dealer’s hands. If the gambler wins 1 hand and loses the other, this is recognized as "push" and no money is won or lost. If croupier wins each hands then he/she wins the gamblers wager and the other way round. Now what if there’s a tie, the only benefit with the croupier here is he/she is victorious on all ties.

Immediately after the hand is bet, the following individual clock-wise becomes the dealer and the following hand is wagered. The main drawback to this game is that there’s no talent involved and you depend too much on luck. Also the chances are inadequate compared to playing with a pot.
