Beginners Schemes for Pai Gow Poker

by Ali on January 16th, 2016

Pai Gow Poker is a modern game with ancient origins. Built on the ancient Chinese domino game and the current American version of poker, Pai Gow poker marries the far east with the west in an excellent game for new gamblers.

Pai Gow is a poker game that pits the gambler versus the dealer, not like the majority of other poker games that players wager with other gamblers. By competing against the dealer, beginning players do not need to worry about other, more advanced people winning their cash.

Another Pai Gow advantage is the generally leisurely game pace, beginners should be able to take their time and scheme without having to make frenzied decisions.

It’s also much simpler to gamble on for a long time with just a little bit of cash since, to not win, each of your hands needs to be under both of the houses hands.

Pai Gow is played with 53 cards; the regular 52-card basic deck and a single joker. The gambler is given 7 cards face up and the croupier receives 7 cards face down.

A five card hand and a 2 card hand need to be made from the seven cards, the five card hand has to be better than the two card hand. To succeed, a player needs both of his hand values to be higher than the houses.
