Let us learn a different kind of poker other than Texas holdem, 7 card stud, 5 card draw and Omaha Hold’em. Yes, double-hand poker. Now you must be wondering that pai-gow sounds a bit Chinese; yes you are proper this casino game is really a combination of the Chinese casino game pai gow and our very own American poker. Surely this isn’t 1 of the most well-liked styles of poker but still it’s widely bet. It can be played by up to seven players.

It is bet with 1 deck of fifty two cards, including a joker. Curiously, the joker can be utilized only as an ace, to finish a straight, a flush, a straight flush, or a royal flush. The important thing here to keep in mind is aside from the usual ranking of hands we have 1 more winning hand that is "5 Aces" (five aces such as the joker). Remarkably, 5 aces defeat all other hands which includes royal flush.

Every single player is dealt 7 cards. The cards are arranged to form two hands; a two card hand and a five card hand. The five card hand must rank greater or be equal to the 2 card hand. Finally each of your hands must rank higher than both of your competitors hands (each 5 and 2 card hands). Additionally the 2 card hand can merely have two combinations; 1 pair and high card.

Following the cards are organized in to 2 hands, they are positioned on the table face down. As soon as you place them down, you may not touch them. The croupier will flip over their cards and make his hands. Each and every gamblers hand is in comparison to the dealer’s hands. If the player wins 1 hand and manages to lose the other, this is identified as "push" and no money is won or lost. If dealer wins both hands then he/she captures the players stake and the opposite way round. Now what if there is a tie, the only benefit with the croupier here is he/she wins all ties.

Right after the hand is bet, the next person clock-wise becomes the croupier and the following hand is wagered. The big disadvantage to this casino game is that there is no ability required and you depend too much on good fortune. Also the chances are terrible in comparison to playing with a pot.
