Beginners Course of Action for Pai Gow Poker

Pai Gow Poker is a current game with ancient origins. Based on the old Chinese tile game and the current American adaptation of poker, Pai Gow poker marries the east with the western in a wonderful game for starting gamblers.

Pai Gow is a poker game that puts the gambler versus the casino, not like almost all other poker games that gamblers wager against other gamblers. By wagering against the dealer, starting players do not have to worry about other, more advanced individuals taking their moolla.

A further Pai Gow benefit is the fairly slow game pace, rookies should be able to take their time and strategize while not having to make hasty choices.

It is also easier to gamble on for an extended time with just a little bit of money seeing as, to not win, both of your hands needs to be lower than both of the houses hands.

Pai Gow is played with 53 cards; the normal 52-card common deck and one joker. The gambler is given seven cards faces showing and the dealer receives seven cards faces hidden.

One 5 card hand and one 2 card hand need to be put together from the seven cards dealt, the five card hand must be higher than the two card hand. To succeed, a player is required to have both of his hand values to be better than the houses.
