Double-Hand Poker Game Rules

[ English ]

Let us learn a various sort of poker other than holdem, seven card stud, five card draw and Omaha Holdem. Yes, double-hand poker. Now you need to be wondering that pai gow sounds a little Chinese; yes you’re right this casino game is a combination of the Chinese game double-hand and our very own American poker. Definitely this is not one of the most popular forms of poker but still it’s widely bet. It could be played by up to seven players.

It’s bet with 1 deck of 52 cards, plus a joker. Interestingly, the joker may be utilized only as an ace, to finish a straight, a flush, a straight flush, or a royal flush. The critical element here to keep in mind is other than the usual rating of hands we have one more succeeding hand that is "5 Aces" (five aces such as the joker). Remarkably, 5 aces beat all other hands which includes royal flush.

Each player is dealt 7 cards. The cards are arranged to make 2 hands; a two card hand and a five card hand. The five card hand must rank greater or be equal to the 2 card hand. Finally each of your hands have to rank greater than both of your competitors hands (each 5 and two card hands). Further the two card hand can just have two permutations; one pair and high card.

Right after the cards are arranged in to two hands, they are placed on the table face down. Once you put them down, you may not touch them. The dealer will flip over their cards and make their hands. Each gamblers hand is in comparison to the croupier’s hands. If the gambler is victorious on one hand and loses the other, this is identified as "push" and no money is exchanged. If croupier wins each hands then they wins the gamblers stake and the other way around. Now what if there’s a tie, the only edge with the croupier here is he/she wins all ties.

Right after the hand is played, the next individual clock-wise becomes the dealer and the subsequent hand is wagered. The big downside to this casino game is that there is no skill involved and you rely too much on good fortune. Also the chances are inadequate compared to playing with a pot.
