HOW TO PLAY
The combination of a Chinese game of Pai Gow and poker is played with a deck of 52 cards. You are dealt a hand of seven cards and have to split them into the best five- card hand and the bet two-card hand that you can make. The five-card hand must rank higher than the two-card hand, otherwise you have a “foul” hand and must reselect your hand choice. The game is played between players and the dealer. You bet your hands to beat those of the dealer. In order for you to win, both of your hands must be better than the dealer’s. If you win one hand and the dealer wins one, this is a push, and your money is returned. Due to a high percentage of pushes, this is a great game to make your money last while having a good time!
