How to play Pai Gow Poker

Pai Gow originated in the 1800's, when the Chinese domino game Gai Gow was combined with American poker. It is a more slow paced game but still offers excitement to the player.

The object of the game is to have a higher ranked five-card and two-card Poker hand than the house.

The player is dealt 7 cards. These cards must be split into two Poker hands: a two-card hand and a five-card hand. The player can split the hand however he/she likes, but must follow one simple rule: the 5 card hand must be ranked higher than the 2 card hand. To win, the player's hands must rank higher than the house's. If one of the player's hands wins and one loses, the round is a push. If both hands loose, the player looses the bet.
