Pai Gow Poker
Jun 10th, 2013

Also known as Double-hand poker, Pai Gow Poker was derived from the Chinese dominoes Pai Gow, and was created by Sam Torosian and Fred Wolf.

This poker game is played with the usual standard 52 card deck with one little unexpected addition, one Joker card. The table is a six man table, along with the dealer, and the aim of the game is to beat the ‘Banker’, which could either be the dealer or any one of the other players sitting at the table at the time of the game.

The main aim of the game it to create two poker hands with the seven cards which you are dealt, one hand is a five card hand, and the other a two card poker hand. Now this may sound reasonably simple, but your five card hand must exceed the two card hand’s rank. Of course the only possible two card hands are a pair, and high cards. The five card hand of course uses standard poker hand rankings, but yet again with one little exception, in most Nevada casinos A-2-3-4-5 ranks higher than K-Q-J-10-9, but lower than an Ace high straight, A-K-Q-J-10.

Now back to the other twist to this version of the game of poker, the Joker comes into play as a Joker would in a game of Rummy, the Joker can be used, only in the five card hand, to complete a possible flush or straight hand, but if this is not possible can be considered as an Ace.

The main aim still remains to beat the ‘Banker’, both your hands must beat that of the bankers in order to the bet, if only one of the hands beats that of the bankers then neither the banker or you as the player wins, and of course if both hands are lower, that means the ‘Banker’ wins.

There are a number of variations to this game, but this is the basic idea behind the originally created game of Pai Gow Poker.
