Double-Hand Poker Game Rules

Let us learn a diverse kind of poker other than Texas hold’em, five card stud, 5 card draw and Omaha Hold’em. Yes, pai gow poker. Now you ought to be wondering that double-hand sounds a bit Chinese; yes you are right this casino game is a mixture of the Chinese casino game double-hand and our very own US poker. Definitely this isn’t one of the most popular styles of poker but still it is widely played. It might be wagered by up to seven gamblers.

It is bet with 1 deck of fifty-two cards, including a joker. Curiously, the joker can be utilized only as an ace, to finish a straight, a flush, a straight flush, or a royal flush. The significant element here to remember is aside from the usual ranking of hands we have one more succeeding hand that is "Five Aces" (5 aces which includes the joker). Surprisingly, five aces beat all other hands including royal flush.

Each player is dealt 7 cards. The cards are set up to form two hands; a two card hand and a five card hand. The 5 card hand has to rank higher or be equal to the 2 card hand. Finally both of your hands have to rank higher than both of your competitors hands (both five and two card hands). Further the 2 card hand can only have 2 combinations; 1 pair and high card.

After the cards are set up in to 2 hands, they are placed on the table face down. As soon as you place them down, you can no longer touch them. The croupier will flip over his cards and make his hands. Every gamblers hand is compared to the croupier’s hands. If the player wins one hand and manages to lose the other, this is recognized as "push" and no money is won or lost. If dealer wins each hands then he/she wins the gamblers wager and the other way round. Now what if there’s a tie, the only edge with the croupier here is they is victorious on all ties.

Following the hand is bet, the following individual clock-wise becomes the croupier and the following hand is wagered. The big downside to this casino game is that there is no talent required and you rely too much on good fortune. Also the odds are negative in comparison to wagering with a pot.
