Pai Gow Poker is a modern game with old origins. Founded on the old Chinese domino game and the current American adaptation of poker, Pai Gow poker marries the eastern with the west in an awesome game for new players.

Pai Gow is a poker game that pits the player versus the house, unlike almost all other poker games that gamblers bet against other players. By competing against the dealer, new players do not have to fret about other, more advanced players winning their cash.

An additional Pai Gow benefit is the generally slow game play, rookies will be able to take their time and scheme without needing to make hasty choices.

It’s also much simpler to play for an extended time with basically a small amount of cash since, to not win, both of your hands needs to be under each of the houses hands.

Pai Gow is played with 53 cards; the familiar 52-card common deck and one joker. The player is assigned seven cards faces showing and the croupier receives seven cards faces hidden.

One 5 card hand and a 2 card hand have to be put together from the seven cards dealt, the 5 card hand must be better than the two card hand. To succeed, a player needs both of his hand totals to be better than the houses.
