Pai Gow Poker gives card players the best of both worlds. This exciting game combines the ancient Chinese game of Pai Gow with the American classic, Poker. Played with a regular deck of 52 cards plus one Joker — which can be used only as an Ace, or to fill out a straight, flush or a straight flush — the game produces some robust card combinations .

The objective is simple. Each player receives seven cards. The players then arrange their cards into two hands (one of five cards and one of two cards) using traditional poker rankings. The highest two-card hand would be a pair of Aces. The highest five-card hand would be five Aces. Ultimately, players strive for the five-card hand to rank higher than its two-card counterpart.
