"Pai Gow Poker" is a variant of the Chinese domino game Pai Gow. It is played with a 53-card deck including one joker. The player and dealer are getting 7 cards each which are used to combine two hands on each side. One hand represents a typical 5-card stud poker hand and the second hand is represented only by a pair of cards. The player and the dealer hands are competing with the other sides counterpart where each hand is ranking individually.
