Double-Hand Poker Rules

[ English ]

Let’s learn a distinct type of poker other than hold’em, five card stud, five card draw and Omaha Hold’em. Yes, double-hand poker. Now you have to be wondering that pai-gow sounds a bit Chinese; yes you’re appropriate this game is a mix of the Chinese game pai-gow and our very own US poker. Certainly this is not one of the most popular styles of poker but still it’s widely wagered. It may be wagered by up to 7 gamblers.

It’s bet with one deck of 52 cards, plus a joker. Strangely enough, the joker can be utilized only as an ace, to finish a straight, a flush, a straight flush, or a royal flush. The critical element here to remember is other than the normal ranking of hands we have 1 more succeeding hand that’s "5 Aces" (five aces including the joker). Remarkably, five aces defeat all other hands which includes royal flush.

Every gambler is dealt 7 cards. The cards are organized to make two hands; a two card hand and a five card hand. The 5 card hand has to rank greater or be equal to the 2 card hand. Lastly both of your hands must rank higher than each of your competitors hands (both 5 and 2 card hands). Additionally the two card hand can merely have two permutations; one pair and high card.

Soon after the cards are arranged in to two hands, they’re positioned on the table face down. Once you put them down, you can not handle them. The dealer will turn over their cards and make his hands. Each and every gamblers hand is compared to the dealer’s hands. If the player wins 1 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 they captures the players wager and the other way round. Now what if there’s a tie, the only benefit with the dealer here is he/she wins all ties.

Immediately after the hand is played, the following individual clock-wise becomes the dealer and the subsequent hand is bet. The major disadvantage to this game is that there’s no ability involved and you rely too much on luck. Also the chances are poor compared to playing with a pot.
