[ English | Deutsch | Español | Français | Italiano ]

Pai gow Poker is an American card-playing derivative of the centuries-old casino game of Chinese Dominoes. In the early nineteenth century, Chinese laborers introduced the game while working in California.

The game’s reputation with Chinese bettors ultimately drew the interest of entrepreneurial gamblers who replaced the conventional tiles with cards and modeled the game into a new form of poker. Introduced into the poker suites of California in 1986, the game’s instant popularity and popularity with Asian poker players drew the awareness of Nevada’s betting house owners who rapidly assimilated the casino game into their own poker rooms. The reputation of the game has continued into the 21st century.

Pai-gow tables cater to up to six gamblers and also a croupier. Distinguishing from common poker, all players wager on against the dealer and not against just about every other.

In an anti-clockwise rotation, each and every gambler is dealt 7 face down cards by the dealer. Forty-nine cards are given, including the dealer’s seven cards.

Every gambler and the croupier must form two poker hands: a high palm of five cards along with a low hand of 2 cards. The hands are based on classic poker rankings and as such, a 2 card palm of 2 aces will be the highest feasible palm of 2 cards. A five aces palm would be the greatest five card hands. How do you obtain 5 aces in a standard 52 card deck? That you are really wagering with a fifty-three card deck since one joker is allowed into the game. The joker is considered a wild card and may be used as one more ace or to finish a straight or flush.

The highest 2 hands win each game and only a single player having the 2 greatest hands simultaneously can win.

A dice toss from a cup containing 3 dice determines who will be given the first hands. After the hands are given, gamblers must form the 2 poker hands, keeping in mind that the five-card hand must often position greater than the 2-card palm.

When all gamblers have set their hands, the dealer will generate comparisons with his or her hand position for pay outs. If a gambler has one hands larger in position than the dealer’s except a lower 2nd hands, this is regarded a tie.

If the dealer beats each hands, the gambler loses. In the case of both gambler’s hands and each croupier’s hands being the same, the dealer is victorious. In casino wager on, ofttimes considerations are made for a player to become the croupier. In this circumstance, the gambler will need to have the funds for any payouts due succeeding gamblers. Of course, the gambler acting as croupier can corner some huge pots if he can beat most of the gamblers.

Some betting houses rule that gamblers cannot deal or bank two consecutive hands, and some poker rooms will offer to co-bank 50/50 with any gambler that decides to take the bank. In all situations, the croupier will ask players in turn if they want to be the banker.

In Double-hand Poker, you’re given "static" cards which means you have no opportunity to change cards to possibly enhance your hands. Even so, as in traditional 5-card draw, you’ll find strategies to produce the greatest of what you have been given. An example is keeping the flushes or straights in the five-card palm and the 2 cards remaining as the 2nd high palm.

If that you are lucky enough to draw 4 aces and a joker, it is possible to retain 3 aces in the five-card hands and strengthen your two-card palm with the other ace and joker. 2 pair? Retain the increased pair in the 5-card palm and the other two matching cards will make up the 2nd hands.
