Amateurs Strategy for Pai Gow Poker

Pai Gow Poker is a modern game with ancient ancestry. Founded on the old Chinese tile game and the modern American version of poker, Pai Gow poker combines the east with the wild west in an excellent game for beginning level gamblers.

Pai Gow is a poker game that pits the player against the croupier, unlike almost all other poker games that gamblers play with other gamblers. By competing against the dealer, new players don’t have to worry about any other, more skillful individuals taking their money.

Another Pai Gow edge is the generally slow game play, newcomers can take their time and strategize without having to make quick choices.

It is also much simpler to gamble on for a long time with just a small amount of money seeing as, to not win, both of your hands needs to be under each of the casino’s hands.

Pai Gow is played with 53 cards; the normal 52-card standard deck and one joker. The gambler is dealt seven cards face up and the dealer is given seven cards face down.

One 5 card hand and one 2 card hand have to be made from the 7 cards, the five card hand must be better than the 2 card hand. To succeed, a player needs both of his hand totals to be higher than the dealer’s.
