Novice Tactics for Pai Gow Poker

Pai Gow Poker is a modern game with old ancestry. Built on the ancient Chinese tile game and the modern American variation of poker, Pai Gow poker bands together the east with the west in a fantastic game for new players.

Pai Gow is a poker game that pits the player vs. the dealer, not like nearly all other poker games that players compete with other players. By competing against the dealer, new players do not have to worry about any other, more experienced individuals taking their cash.

An additional Pai Gow benefit is the generally slow game pace, newcomers are able to take their time and scheme without needing to make hasty choices.

It is also easier to gamble on for a long time with just a tiny bit of money seeing as, to not win, both of your hands needs to be lower than both of the dealer’s hands.

Pai Gow uses 53 cards; the regular 52-card common deck and a single joker. The player is given 7 cards face up and the croupier gets 7 cards face down.

A 5 card hand and one 2 card hand must be put together from the seven cards, the 5 card hand has to be stronger than the two card hand. To win, a player is required to have both of his hand values to be better than the casino’s.
