Double-hand Poker Game Rules

Let us learn some different styles of poker other than texas hold’em, 5 card stud, 5 card draw and omaha eight-or-better. Yes, pai gow poker. Now you must be wondering that pai gow sounds a bit Chinese; well you are correct, this card game is a blending of the Chinese game pai gow and our own American poker
Absolutely this isn’t one of the most popular styles of poker but still broadly played. It can be played by up to 7 players. It is played with 1 deck of cards, plus a joker. Interestingly, the Joker can be used only as an ace, or to complete a straight, flush, a straight flush, or royal flush. The critical thing here to bear in mind is aside from the usual ranking of hands we have one more winning hand that is "Five Aces" (five aces including the joker). Surprisingly, five aces is greater than every other hand including royal flush. Every gambler is given seven cards. The cards are aligned to create two hands; a two card hand and a five card hand. The five card hand has to be better or be equal to the 2 card hand.
After setting up the 2 hands, the cards are positioned on the poker table with the faces down. Once on the table, you can’t switch them. The dealer will turn over their cards and assemble his hands. Every competitors hand is compared to the croupier’s hands. If the player take 1 hand and lose the other, this is known as "push" and absolutely no money is exchanged. If dealer wins the two hands then the individual looses their bet and vice versa. Now if there is a draw, the croupier wins everything. After the hand is played, the very next person clock-wise gets to be the dealer and the following hand is given out.
