It is a variant excellent for drilling and used to the different combinations. Pai Gow Poker is a poker game that uses a deck of 53 cards (52 plus one joker) and a nut. The cards are used to play poker and dice to designate the player who receives the first card at the time of distribution. The maximum number of players at the table is 6. Each player plays against the dealer or dealer and each will receive seven cards, instead of five as in the classic poker.
The rules of the game in the strict
The joker is used to replace the ace or any other card to form a royal flush, a flush or a straight. Each player is dealt seven cards, as well as the dealer or croupier. We try to make two hands with seven cards: The first call high or back is made up of five cards, as in the classic poker, and said second low or front consists of two cards. The rule and the principle is the same as the classic poker for the high hand. For the second coat, the highest combination is the pair of aces and the lower the torque of 2 or 3. Each player then play against the house, which is against the dealer. Players with both hands higher than the dealer, or croupier will be the winners, which is why there will be more winners in the same lap.
The hand back follows the same order of classic poker, and descending: royal flush, straight flush, four of a kind or poker, full house, flush, straight, three of a kind, two pair and pair. As for the stairs, the highest combination is the imperial one, or ace-king-queen-jack-ten of the same suit, then the scale ace-two-three-four-five, then the scale king-queen-jack -10:00 to 9:00, and finally the lower scales. The back hand must be composed so as to be higher than the front hand. For example, if you have a pair of two, a pair of kings and three other cards, it is more interesting to divide the two pair between both hands rather than keep it for her hand back and compose an unpaired hand to the front. Then the pair of kings must appear in the hand back and the pair of two will form the front hand. The goal is to win with both hands simultaneously. With one hand than you can not win.
To win you have to have both hands higher than the dealer at the same time. The player loses against the dealer or if the dealer has the two highest hands and you do not win or you lose if only one hand is higher, for both the croupier for the pointer: this is what is called “push.” In this case we recover the bet and it can happen so-called “copy” or that the croupier and the players are ex-aequo (even) in one hand or both, and is always the dealer to win the bet in this case. The bet is one chip. Luck plays a major role in this game and there is absolutely no bluffing or proceed to analysis or observation of other players. It is the hand of the initial distribution that determines the game, there is only one opponent: the Casino. The essential thing is then able to combine the cards in your possession to make two winning combinations.
The house / casino
It is a game where the stakes are very low and, in the same way, the odds are low. The house takes, generally, the 5% of each payout of each player in each round of play.
