Double-hand Poker is a current game with ancient ancestry. Built on the ancient Chinese tile game and the modern American adaptation of poker, Pai Gow poker bands together the far east with the west in a wonderful game for beginning level players.

Pai Gow is a poker game that pits the gambler vs. the casino, not like nearly all other poker games that gamblers compete against other players. By gambling against the dealer, starting players don’t need to fret about any other, more advanced people winning their mulla.

Another Pai Gow advantage is the generally leisurely game play, rookies should be able to take their time and plan while not needing to make hasty choices.

It is also easier to bet on for a long time with only a small amount of money since, to lose, each of your hands needs to be under each of the houses hands.

Pai Gow is played with 53 cards; the familiar 52-card basic deck and a single joker. The gambler is given seven cards face up and the dealer is given seven cards faces hidden.

One five card hand and a two card hand have to be put together from the 7 cards dealt, the five card hand must be stronger than the two card hand. To succeed, a player is required to have both of his hand totals to be larger than the houses.
