Pai Gow Poker Game Rules

Let us learn a several sort of poker other than Texas hold’em, 7 card stud, 5 card draw and Omaha Holdem. Yes, double-hand poker. Now you ought to be wondering that pai-gow sounds a little Chinese; yes you’re appropriate this game is a combination of the Chinese game pai-gow and our very own Yankee poker. Certainly this is not one of the most popular types of poker but still it is widely bet. It can be wagered by up to 7 gamblers.

It’s wagered with one deck of 52 cards, including a joker. Strangely enough, the joker may be used only as an ace, to finish a straight, a flush, a straight flush, or a royal flush. The crucial thing here to remember is apart from the normal ranking of hands we have 1 more succeeding hand that is "5 Aces" (five aces such as the joker). Amazingly, five aces defeat all other hands which includes royal flush.

Each and every player is dealt 7 cards. The cards are arranged to make two hands; a two card hand and a 5 card hand. The 5 card hand has to rank higher or be equal to the 2 card hand. Finally each of your hands have to rank higher than both of your competitors hands (both five and 2 card hands). Further the two card hand can only have two permutations; one pair and high card.

Immediately after the cards are arranged in to two hands, they’re positioned on the table face down. Once you place them down, you may not touch them. The croupier will turn over their cards and make his hands. Each and every gamblers hand is compared to the croupier’s hands. If the player is victorious on 1 hand and manages to lose the other, this is identified as "push" and no money is exchanged. If croupier wins both hands then he/she captures the players wager and vice versa. Now what if there is a tie, the only benefit with the dealer here is he/she wins all ties.

Soon after the hand is played, the following individual clock-wise becomes the croupier and the following hand is bet. The big downside to this game is that there is no skill required and you depend too much on fortune. Also the odds are terrible compared to playing with a pot.
