Newcomer Tactics for Pai Gow Poker

Double-hand Poker is a current game with ancient ancestry. Founded on the ancient Chinese domino game and the current American variation of poker, Pai Gow poker bands together the eastern with the wild west in a wonderful game for starting gamblers.

Pai Gow is a poker game that puts the gambler against the house, not like nearly all other poker games that players compete against other players. By betting against the dealer, beginning players do not have to fret about any other, more advanced gamblers winning their moolla.

A further Pai Gow benefit is the relatively leisurely game pace, newcomers can take their time and strategize while not having to make quick decisions.

It is also much simpler to participate in for an extended time with basically a small bit of money since, to not win, both of your hands must be lower than both of the dealer’s hands.

Pai Gow is played with 53 cards; the regular 52-card common deck and one joker. The gambler is dealt seven cards face up and the dealer is given 7 cards faces hidden.

One five card hand and one 2 card hand must be put together from the seven cards dealt, the five card hand must be stronger than the two card hand. To succeed, a player needs both of his hand values to be larger than the houses.
