Let’s learn a different kind of poker other than holdem, 7 card stud, five card draw and Omaha Holdem. Yes, pai gow poker. Now you should be wondering that double-hand sounds a bit Chinese; yes you are proper this casino game is really a mix of the Chinese casino game pai-gow and our very own US poker. Certainly this is not one of the most well-liked forms of poker but still it is widely bet. It might be bet by up to seven players.

It’s wagered with one deck of fifty-two cards, plus a joker. Interestingly, the joker may be utilized only as an ace, to complete a straight, a flush, a straight flush, or a royal flush. The essential element here to remember is aside from the normal ranking of hands we have 1 more winning hand which is "5 Aces" (five aces which includes the joker). Remarkably, 5 aces beat all other hands which includes royal flush.

Every player is dealt seven cards. The cards are organized to make 2 hands; a 2 card hand and a 5 card hand. The 5 card hand must rank higher or be equal to the two card hand. Lastly each of your hands must rank greater than both of your oppositions hands (both five and 2 card hands). Further the 2 card hand can merely have 2 combinations; one pair and high card.

After the cards are organized in to two hands, they’re positioned on the table face down. As soon as you place them down, you may not touch them. The dealer will turn over his cards and make his hands. Each and every gamblers hand is in comparison to the croupier’s hands. If the gambler is victorious on one hand and manages to lose the other, this is known as "push" and no money is exchanged. If dealer wins each hands then he/she captures the players stake and the other way round. Now what if there’s a tie, the only advantage with the croupier here is he/she is victorious on all ties.

Immediately after the hand is wagered, the next individual clock-wise becomes the dealer and the next hand is bet. The big downside to this game is that there is no ability involved and you rely too much on luck. Also the odds are terrible in comparison to betting with a pot.
