Playing Pai Gow Poker
Once a wager has been made based on the poker table minimum, the players of the game are given seven cards. The challenge for Pai Gow Poker players is to come up with two card combinations- one combo includes 5 high card hand, and the remaining for a low hand. In this game, a pair or no pair should be included in the two-card low hand, and after this, cards are valued depending at face values. Once the cards have been set by the players, it is the dealers turn to present the cards, and divide the hand using the same rules called ‘house way’.
After showing the dealer hands, both high and low hands will be compared, and the hand with a higher poker value wins the game. If both the player and the dealer achieves the same poker value, the win goes to the banker. Now, if the player manages to submit the higher value for both hand combinations, he gets the money, but may be charged with a 5-percent commission. But if the poker player loses both hand comparisons, he loses the game and wager.
