Posted by George | Posted in Poker | Posted on 30-11-2015

Pai Gow Poker is a current game with old ancestry. Based on the old Chinese tile game and the modern American version of poker, Pai Gow poker marries the east with the western in a great game for beginner level gamblers.

Pai Gow is a poker game that pits the player vs. the croupier, unlike most other poker games that gamblers bet with other gamblers. By playing against the dealer, new players don’t need to worry about other, more advanced players taking their mulla.

One more Pai Gow benefit is the generally slow game pace, newcomers can take their time and plan while not having to make frenzied selections.

It is also easier to gamble on for an extended time with basically a tiny bit of cash since, to not win, each of your hands has to be lower than both of the houses hands.

Pai Gow is played with 53 cards; the normal 52-card standard deck and one joker. The player is assigned 7 cards face up and the house receives 7 cards face down.

A five card hand and a 2 card hand need to be put together from the 7 cards dealt, the 5 card hand has to be stronger than the 2 card hand. To succeed, a player is required to have both of his hand values to be larger than the dealer’s.
