• Double-hand Poker Guidelines

    Let’s become versed in some alternate kinds of poker other than holdem, 5 card stud, five card draw and omaha/8. Yes, pai gow poker. Now you must be wondering that double-hand sounds a bit Chinese; well you’re right, this card game is a mixture of the Chinese game pai gow and poker
    Absolutely this isn’t one of the highly popular varieties of poker but still broadly played. It can be enjoyed by up to 7 players. It is played with 1 deck of cards, with a joker. Interestingly, joker can only be used as an ace, or to complete a straight, flush, straight flush, or royal flush. The important element here to remember is apart from the usual ranking of hands we’ve an additional winning hand that is "Five Aces" (five aces including the joker). Astonishingly, five aces beats all other hand yes, even a royal flush. Each gambler is dealt seven cards. The cards are aligned to create 2 hands; a two card hand and a 5 card hand. The 5 card hand must be stronger or be equivalent to the two card hand.
    After setting up the 2 hands, the cards are placed on the table face down. Once down, you can’t change them. The dealer will turn over his cards and arrange their hands. Every players hand is played against the croupier’s hands. If the player take 1 hand and lose the other, this is referred to as "push" and absolutely no cash is lost or won. If croupier wins the two hands then the bettor gives up their wager the opposite is true if the player wins both hands. Now if there is a draw, the croupier wins everything. After the hand is played, the next person clock-wise gets to be the dealer and the next hand is dealt.
