Game Rules Pai Gow Poker

Pai Gow poker is a mix of an old Chinees game and the normal American Poker.

Players have to beat the dealer with 2 hands of cards.

The ‘Wild Card’ can count as any other card, except the Ace card (or if you use it as fifth card in a straight or flush). It is also not allowed to use the Wild Card to make a pair of 10-and or Women.

The game is played with one deck of cards.

The Game:
After the bet the bank will deal seven cards to each player and itselfs. Both parties can split theirt cards in 2 hands, one with 5 cards and one with 2 cards. The hand with the most cards has to have more value than the hand with the fewest cards.

The rankings and scores are the same as in traditional poker. In Pai Gow Poker, it is possible to beat a Royal Flush with five aces in one hand . The wild card, in this case, is the fifth Ace. The player wins only if both his hands have more value than the dealer.
