Double-Hand Poker Rules

Let us learn a various type of poker other than Texas holdem, 7 card stud, five card draw and Omaha Holdem. Yes, pai-gow poker. Now you have to be wondering that double-hand sounds a little Chinese; yes you are correct this game is really a mixture of the Chinese game pai-gow and our very own American poker. Certainly this isn’t 1 of the most well-known styles of poker but still it is widely played. It might be wagered by up to 7 gamblers.

It’s played with one deck of fifty-two cards, including a joker. Curiously, the joker can be used only as an ace, to finish a straight, a flush, a straight flush, or a royal flush. The crucial thing here to bear in mind is apart from the normal 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 including royal flush.

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

Immediately after the cards are set up in to two hands, they’re placed on the table face down. As soon as you put them down, you can not touch them. The dealer will flip over their cards and make their hands. Every players hand is in comparison to the dealer’s hands. If the gambler wins one hand and manages to lose the other, this is identified as "push" and no money is exchanged. If dealer wins each hands then he/she wins the gamblers stake and the opposite way round. Now what if there’s a tie, the only advantage with the croupier here is he/she is victorious on all ties.

After the hand is wagered, the following person clock-wise becomes the croupier and the following hand is bet. The main downside to this game is that there is no talent involved and you rely too much on good fortune. Also the odds are poor compared to playing with a pot.
