Novice Strategy for Pai Gow Poker

Pai Gow Poker is a modern game with ancient ancestry. Built on the ancient Chinese tile game and the modern American version of poker, Pai Gow poker marries the east with the wild west in a fantastic game for new players.

Pai Gow is a poker game that pits the gambler vs. the house, not like most other poker games that gamblers play against other gamblers. By wagering against the dealer, beginner players do not have to worry about other, more advanced individuals winning their cash.

One more Pai Gow advantage is the relatively slow game pace, beginners will be able to take their time and strategize while not having to make quick decisions.

It’s also much simpler to gamble on for an extended time with just a little bit of money after all, to lose, both of your hands needs to be under both of the casino’s hands.

Pai Gow uses 53 cards; the regular 52-card common deck and one joker. The gambler is given seven cards faces showing and the croupier is dealt seven cards faces hidden.

One five card hand and a two card hand need to be put together from the seven cards dealt, the 5 card hand must be stronger than the 2 card hand. To win, a player needs both of his hand totals to be higher than the dealer’s.
