At Kings Card Club, Pai Gow Poker has it’s own special jackpot over $10,000! PAI GOW POKER IN DETAIL
In Pai Gow poker (also known as double-hand poker), the deck consists of 53 cards, 52 arranged into four suits, spades, hearts, diamonds, and clubs, plus one joker. Unlike bridge and other games, no suit is “worth” more than any other. Each suit consists of 13 cards, ranked, from highest to lowest: ace, king, queen, jack, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2.
An ace can also rank as the lowest card, but only in a 5-high straight. That is, A-K-Q-J-10 is the highest straight, while in this hand, the straight 5-4-3-2-A, the ace is the lowest card. Two-Card Hand Rankings
Two-card hands fall into two categories, pair and no pair. The pairs rank from highest, A-A, to lowest, 2-2. The no-pair hands rank from highest, A-K, to lowest, 3-2.
In two-card hands, the joker is just another ace. For example, the hand A♥-joker is a pair of aces and joker-4♣ is the same as any other A-4 combination. PAYOFFS To Win
To win, both player hands must rank higher than the player-dealer’s two hands. To Lose
To lose, both player hands must rank lower than or tie the player-dealer’s two hands. (If either hand ties that of the player-dealer, this is considered a win for the dealer. For example, both player and player-dealer have ace-king as their front hand. The player-dealer wins.)
