Pai Gow Poker Rules

Let’s learn a several kind of poker other than hold’em, five card stud, 5 card draw and Omaha Holdem. Yes, pai gow poker. Now you need to be wondering that pai gow sounds a little Chinese; yes you’re appropriate this casino game is really a blend of the Chinese game pai gow and our very own American poker. Definitely this isn’t one of the most well-liked types of poker but still it is widely bet. It can be wagered by up to 7 players.

It is bet with 1 deck of fifty-two cards, including a joker. Curiously, the joker can be used only as an ace, to complete a straight, a flush, a straight flush, or a royal flush. The essential element here to bear in mind is other than the usual rating of hands we have 1 more succeeding hand that is "Five Aces" (5 aces which includes the joker). Amazingly, five aces beat all other hands including royal flush.

Each and every player is dealt seven cards. The cards are organized to make two hands; a 2 card hand and a 5 card hand. The 5 card hand must rank greater or be equal to the two card hand. Finally both of your hands must rank greater than each of your oppositions hands (both five and 2 card hands). Further the 2 card hand can merely have two combinations; one pair and high card.

After the cards are set up in to 2 hands, they are positioned on the table face down. Once you put them down, you may not handle them. The croupier will turn over his cards and make his hands. Every single gamblers hand is in comparison to the croupier’s hands. If the gambler is victorious on one hand and loses the other, this is recognized as "push" and no money is won or lost. If croupier wins both hands then they captures the gamblers stake and the other way round. Now what if there is a tie, the only benefit with the croupier here is they is victorious on all ties.

Immediately after the hand is bet, the following person clock-wise becomes the dealer and the next hand is played. The main disadvantage to this casino game is that there’s no ability involved and you depend too much on fortune. Also the chances are poor compared to playing with a pot.
