Pai Gow Poker is not as popular as Texas Hold’em Poker, 7 Card Stud, 5 card draw and Omaha but playing it on poker sites can be fun. Pai gow is a similar to Chinese game but a mixture of Chinese game and American poker game. It can be played with 7 players.
Pai Gow Poker is played with a deck of 52 cards and one joker. Interestingly, wild card may be used only as an ace or to complete a straight, a flush, a straight or royal flush. The hands rankings are the most important thing to remember in this game.
Each player is given seven cards which can be arranged to make two hands, two hands and a map of five-card hand. Equal to the map of both hands the five card hand has rank high. On the other hand, the map can only have two suits, a pair of top and the card.
In two hands we can arrange the cards placed on the table, face down. Once you start, you can not touch them. The dealer will turn his cards and make his hands. Each player is compared with the dealer’s hand. In this game we called push which means the player wins one hand and losses the other and in this situation no money is exchanged. Now, what if there is a tie, the only advantage with the dealer is he / she wins all ties.
After the hand is played, the next person clock-wise becomes the dealer and the next game is played. The major drawback of this game is that there is no skill involved and you rely too much on luck. In addition, the chances are low compared to playing with a pot.
