Welcome to the world of Pai Gow Poker at the Friars Club of Calif! As a premier establishment in the Arts & Entertainment - Performing Arts category, we are thrilled to offer a unique and immersive gambling experience that combines the elements of skill and strategy with the thrill of traditional poker.
Originating from ancient Chinese domino games, Pai Gow Poker has gained immense popularity in modern casinos around the world. With its rich history and exciting gameplay, Pai Gow Poker has become a favorite among poker enthusiasts.
The Basics of Pai Gow Poker
If you're new to Pai Gow Poker, fear not! Our expert dealers and staff are here to guide you through the rules and strategies of the game.
The objective of Pai Gow Poker is to create two separate poker hands, one with five cards (high hand) and the other with two cards (low hand), that can defeat both the dealer's high and low hands.
Similar to traditional poker, Pai Gow Poker utilizes standard poker hand rankings with a few exceptions. The highest-ranking hand is five Aces (using a joker as an Ace), and the lowest-ranking hand is a single High Card.
In Pai Gow Poker, the joker can be used either to complete a straight, flush, straight flush, or royal flush or as an Ace. It adds excitement and an additional element of strategy to the game.
Once you place your bet, you will receive seven cards. Using these cards, you will need to arrange them into two separate hands, following specific rules and strategies.
Arranging Your Hands
When arranging your hands, the five-card high hand must always have a higher poker ranking than the two-card low hand.
House Edge and Strategies
Pai Gow Poker offers a relatively low house edge, making it an attractive game for skilled players. With the right strategies, you can improve your chances of winning and maximize your overall gambling experience.
