Pai Gow Poker Table - Poker with a twist! This is a casino gambling game based on the Chinese Domino game Pai Gow but played with poker combinations. It can be played by up to seven players.
A pack of 52 cards plus one joker is used. The joker is a wild card which can be used only as an ace or to complete a straight a flush or a straight flush.
On each deal the dealer plays against the other players. Before the deal each of the other players puts up a stake.
Seven cards are dealt to each player. All players other than the dealer look at their cards and divide them to form two hands - a two card hand and a five card hand. The relative values of the five card hands are the same as in poker with one exception: A-2-3-4-5 is the second highest type of straight or straight flush ranking between A-K-Q-J-10 and K-Q-J-10-9. Five aces is the highest hand beating a straight flush. For the two card hand any pair beats any two unmatched cards but no other combinations are possible.
The player must arrange the cards so that the five card hand is higher than the two card hand (so if the two cards were a pair of aces the five card hand would have to contain two pairs or better). Players are not allowed to discuss their hands at any stage.
The players place their two hands face down and when all are ready the dealer’s seven cards are exposed. The other players may not touch their cards from this point on. The dealer forms the seven exposed cards into a five and a two in the same way as the players.
Then all the players’ cards are exposed. The result between the dealer and each player is determined by comparing the player’s 5 card hand with the dealer’s 5 card hand and the player’s 2 card hand with the dealer’s 2 card hand:
If the player wins both hands the dealer pays out the amount staked by the player.
If either hand is tied the dealer wins that particular hand. So if the dealer wins one hand while the other is tied or if both hands are tied the dealer wins. If one hand is tied and the player wins the other it is a push (no money changes hands).
