Let us learn a distinct kind of poker other than holdem, seven card stud, 5 card draw and Omaha. Yes, double-hand poker. Now you ought to be wondering that pai-gow sounds a bit Chinese; yes you’re proper this casino game is a combination of the Chinese game pai gow and our very own US poker. Definitely this isn’t one of the most well-liked forms of poker but still it is widely wagered. It can be played by up to 7 players.

It’s wagered with 1 deck of fifty-two cards, plus a joker. Curiously, the joker can be used only as an ace, to finish a straight, a flush, a straight flush, or a royal flush. The crucial thing here to remember is other than the usual rating of hands we have 1 more winning hand that is "Five Aces" (five aces which includes the joker). Remarkably, five aces beat all other hands including royal flush.

Every single gambler is dealt seven cards. The cards are arranged to form two hands; a 2 card hand and a five card hand. The 5 card hand must rank greater or be equal to the 2 card hand. Lastly each of your hands have to rank higher than both of your oppositions hands (both 5 and 2 card hands). Further the two card hand can just have 2 combinations; 1 pair and high card.

Right after the cards are organized in to 2 hands, they’re placed on the table face down. Once you place them down, you may not handle them. The dealer will turn over their cards and make his hands. Every gamblers hand is compared to the croupier’s hands. If the player is victorious on 1 hand and manages to lose the other, this is known as "push" and no money is exchanged. If croupier wins equally hands then they wins the players wager and vice versa. Now what if there is a tie, the only advantage with the dealer here is he/she is victorious on all ties.

After the hand is played, the next individual clock-wise becomes the dealer and the following hand is played. The main disadvantage to this game is that there is no talent required and you rely too much on luck. Also the odds are inadequate compared to wagering with a pot.
