Novice Strategy for Double-Hand Poker

Pai Gow Poker is a cutting-edge game with old ancestry. Founded on the ancient Chinese tile game and the modern American adaptation of poker, Pai Gow poker marries the eastern with the wild west in a great game for starting gamblers.

Pai Gow is a poker game that puts the gambler against the croupier, unlike nearly all other poker games that players compete against other gamblers. By betting against the dealer, beginner players do not have to be concerned about any other, more knowledgeable players winning their $$$$.

One more Pai Gow advantage is the relatively leisurely game play, beginners can take their time and scheme while not having to make frenzied choices.

It’s also simpler to gamble on for a long time with only a small amount of money since, to not win, each of your hands needs to be lower than both of the casino’s hands.

Pai Gow is played with 53 cards; the familiar 52-card standard deck and one joker. The player is given seven cards face up and the croupier is given 7 cards face down.

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