Double-hand Poker Guidelines

Let’s learn some different styles of poker other than hold’em, 5 card stud, five card draw and omaha high. Yes, double-hand poker. Now you must be wondering that double-hand sounds a little Chinese; yes you are correct, this casino game is a mixture of the Chinese game pai gow and our very own American poker
Certainly this isn’t one of the most popular styles of poker but still broadly played. It can be played by up to 7 players. It’s played with 1 deck of cards, with a joker. Interestingly, joker can only be used as an ace, or to complete a straight, a flush, straight flush, or royal flush. The critical element here to always remember is other than the normal ranking of hands we’ve one more winning hand that is "Five Aces" (4 Aces and the Joker). Astonishingly, 5 aces beats all other hand yes, even a royal flush. Every player is dealt seven cards. These cards are arranged to make 2 hands; a 2 card hand and a 5 card hand. The five card hand has to be better or be equal to the two card hand.
After arranging the 2 hands, the cards are positioned on the poker table with the faces down. Once down, you can’t change them. The croupier will turn over their cards and assemble his hands. Each competitors hand is compared to the dealer’s hands. If the player wins one hand and lose the other, this is called a "push" and no cash is exchanged. If dealer wins both hands then the bettor looses their bet and vice versa. Now if the hand is a draw, the croupier wins everything. After the hand is competed, the next person clock-wise gets to be the croupier and the next hand is given out.
