Pai Gow, which uses domino tiles instead of poker cards, is the original casino game in which Pai Gow Poker was derived from.
Pai Gow is played by 2 to 8 participants, one of them play as the banker. Each participant is dealt 4 tiles, from a deck of 32 tiles. Each player has to decide on the strategy as of how to divide the 4 tiles into two hands of 2 tiles to create a high hand and a second-high hand. The two hands will then be compared with those of the banker's. The player wins the bet only if both hands have a higher value than those of the banker's. The player loses the bet if both hands have a lower value than those of the banker's. It is a push if the player wins one hand and loses the other hand.
Decide on how to structure your high hand and your second-high hand to win the banker. Should you place stronger tiles in your second-high hand, at the expense of a weaker high hand? Or should you choose to give up on the second-high hand and just rely on a super strong high hand?
