Novice Strategy for Double-Hand Poker

Double-hand Poker is a modern game with ancient ancestry. Based on the old Chinese domino game and the modern American version of poker, Pai Gow poker marries the east with the west in a fantastic game for starting gamblers.

Pai Gow is a poker game that puts the player against the casino, unlike the majority of other poker games that gamblers bet with other players. By gambling against the dealer, beginner players don’t have to be concerned about other, more knowledgeable players winning their cash.

One more Pai Gow benefit is the generally slow game play, beginners are able to take their time and plan while not having to make quick choices.

It is also easier to enjoy for a very long time with just a small amount of cash after all, to not win, both of your hands needs to be under each of the casino’s hands.

Pai Gow uses 53 cards; the regular 52-card basic deck and one joker. The player is given seven cards face up and the casino is given 7 cards faces hidden.

One five card hand and a 2 card hand must be put together from the seven cards, the five card hand has to be stronger than the two card hand. To win, a player needs both of his hand totals to be higher than the houses.
