Let’s learn a different type of poker other than hold’em, seven card stud, 5 card draw and Omaha Hold’em. Yes, pai gow poker. Now you should be wondering that pai gow sounds a little Chinese; yes you are appropriate this game is really a mixture of the Chinese game double-hand and our very own American poker. Certainly this is not one of the most popular styles of poker but still it’s widely played. It can be played by up to seven players.

It is played with 1 deck of fifty two cards, including a joker. Interestingly, the joker can be used only as an ace, to finish a straight, a flush, a straight flush, or a royal flush. The critical thing here to bear in mind is apart from the usual rating of hands we have 1 more succeeding hand that is "5 Aces" (five aces including the joker). Surprisingly, five aces defeat all other hands including royal flush.

Each player is dealt seven cards. The cards are arranged to make 2 hands; a 2 card hand and a five card hand. The 5 card hand must rank higher or be equal to the 2 card hand. Finally each of your hands must rank higher than each of your opponents hands (each five and 2 card hands). Further the two card hand can merely have two permutations; 1 pair and high card.

Following the cards are set up in to 2 hands, they are placed on the table face down. As soon as you place them down, you may no longer handle them. The dealer will turn over his cards and make their hands. Each and every gamblers hand is compared to the croupier’s hands. If the player wins one hand and manages to lose the other, this is identified as "push" and no money is exchanged. If dealer wins equally hands then they captures the players stake and vice versa. Now what if there is certainly a tie, the only benefit with the dealer here is he/she is victorious on all ties.

Soon after the hand is wagered, the next person clock-wise becomes the croupier and the following hand is bet. The main disadvantage to this casino game is that there is no talent required and you depend too much on good fortune. Also the chances are bad compared to playing with a pot.
