Let's learn a distinct type of poker other than hold'em, five card stud, five card draw and Omaha. Yes, pai gow poker. Now you should be wondering that pai-gow sounds a bit Chinese; yes you're correct this game is really a mixture of the Chinese game pai-gow and our very own Yankee poker. Surely this is not one of the most well-known forms of poker but still it is widely wagered. It might be bet by up to 7 players.

It is wagered with one deck of fifty-two cards, plus a joker. Strangely enough, the joker may be employed only as an ace, to finish a straight, a flush, a straight flush, or a royal flush. The critical element here to remember is aside from the usual ranking of hands we have one more winning hand which is "5 Aces" (five aces which includes the joker). Remarkably, five aces defeat all other hands which includes royal flush.

Every player is dealt seven cards. The cards are arranged to form 2 hands; a two card hand and a 5 card hand. The five card hand must rank higher or be equal to the two card hand. Lastly both of your hands must rank higher than both of your opponents hands (both five and 2 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're positioned on the table face down. Once you lay them down, you can not touch them. The croupier will turn over their cards and make their hands. Every gamblers hand is in comparison to the dealer's hands. If the player is victorious on one hand and manages to lose the other, this is known as "push" and no money is exchanged. If croupier wins both hands then they wins the players stake and vice versa. Now what if there's a tie, the only benefit with the croupier here is they is victorious on all ties.

After the hand is played, the next individual clock-wise becomes the dealer and the subsequent hand is wagered. The main disadvantage to this game is that there is no talent required and you rely too much on good fortune. Also the chances are bad in comparison to betting with a pot.
