Double-Hand Poker Rules

[ English ]

Let us learn a diverse sort of poker other than Texas holdem, five card stud, five card draw and Omaha Hold’em. Yes, double-hand poker. Now you have to be wondering that pai-gow sounds a bit Chinese; yes you’re correct this casino game is really a combination of the Chinese game double-hand and our very own Yankee poker. Definitely this is not one of the most popular styles of poker but still it is widely played. It could be wagered by up to 7 gamblers.

It’s played with 1 deck of 52 cards, plus a joker. Curiously, the joker can be employed only as an ace, to finish a straight, a flush, a straight flush, or a royal flush. The significant thing here to bear in mind is apart from the usual rating of hands we have 1 more winning hand which is "Five Aces" (5 aces such as the joker). Remarkably, 5 aces beat all other hands which includes royal flush.

Every player is dealt 7 cards. The cards are set up to make 2 hands; a 2 card hand and a five card hand. The 5 card hand has to rank greater or be equal to the 2 card hand. Lastly both of your hands need to rank higher than both of your oppositions hands (both five and two card hands). Further the two card hand can just have 2 permutations; one pair and high card.

Immediately after the cards are arranged in to 2 hands, they’re placed on the table face down. As soon as you put them down, you can no longer touch them. The dealer will flip over their cards and make their hands. Every players hand is compared to the dealer’s hands. If the player wins 1 hand and loses the other, this is recognized as "push" and no money is won or lost. If croupier wins equally hands then he/she captures the players wager and the opposite way round. Now what if there is a tie, the only edge with the croupier here is he/she is victorious on all ties.

Right after the hand is bet, the following person clock-wise becomes the dealer and the subsequent hand is bet. The major drawback to this casino game is that there’s no ability required and you depend too much on luck. Also the odds are terrible in comparison to betting with a pot.
