Double-hand Poker is a modern game with ancient origins. Built on the old Chinese tile game and the modern American adaptation of poker, Pai Gow poker joins the far east with the western in a great game for beginning level gamblers.

Pai Gow is a poker game that puts the player vs. the casino, not like nearly all other poker games that gamblers bet with other players. By wagering against the dealer, new players do not have to worry about any other, more experienced individuals winning their $$$$.

Another Pai Gow edge is the relatively slow game play, rookies can take their time and plan without needing to make frenzied choices.

It is also much simpler to enjoy for a long time with only a small bit of cash after all, to not win, each of your hands needs to be under each of the houses hands.

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

One 5 card hand and a 2 card hand must be put together from the seven cards, the 5 card hand has to be better than the 2 card hand. To succeed, a player is required to have both of his hand values to be better than the casino’s.
