GAME DESCRIPTION

Pai Gow Poker (also called Double Hand Poker) is a variation of the popular domino Chinese game, Pai \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\nGow. The game is played using a deck of 52 cards, plus a joker. It is \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\nwell known for its slow rate and large number of pushes, which makes it a\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\n low risk game.
The player will play against the dealer and he must \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ncombine his cards in such way so that his card formations are better \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\nthan the dealer formations, while following the rules described below.

RULES

The game is played with a deck of 52 cards, plus JOKER.

The JOKER does not always play the role of WILD CARD. It can be used only to form a straight, or flush, or straight flush or royal flush. Otherwise, it will have the value of ACE.

The player and dealer are given 7 cards each and they must separate their cards into a formation of 5 cards and a formation of 2 cards. Standard poker ranking rules are used to determine the value of each formation.

The 2 cards formation of the player must not be better than the 5 cards formation of the player.
The 2 cards formation of the dealer must not be better than the 5 cards formation of the dealer.

After the player has arranged his cards, the dealer will turn his cards face-up and the 5 card formation of the player will be compared with the 5 card formation of the dealer. The best one will win.
After that, the 2 card formation of the player will be compared with the 2 card formation of the dealer. The best one will win.

An important difference between Pai Gow Poker and standard poker ranking rules is that in this game, the best straight is the high ACE straight (A-K-Q-J-10), followed by the low ACE straight(A-2-3-4-5) and then followed by KING straight (K-Q-J-10-9).

If the player and dealer have the same formation ranking, then the formation with the highest cards will win.

If the player and dealer have the same formation cards, it will not result in a tie, but the dealer will win.

If the player will win both hands, a commission (displayed as rake in the game screen) will be applied to his win. If the player will win a hand and the dealer a hand, it will result in a push. If the dealer will win both hands, the player will lose the bet.

House way
(determines the strategy used by the house to arrange its cards)
No pair: Place the highest card in the 5-card formation and the next two highest cards in the 2-card formation.

One pair: Place the pair in the 5-card formation and the next two highest cards in the 2-card formation.

Two pair: Play two pair in the 5-card formation, except split in the following situations:
-One pair is 7's or greater and no ace singleton.
-Pair of jacks or better and 6's or better and an ace singleton.
-Pair of aces and any other pair.

Three pair: Always play highest pair in the 2-card formation.

Three of a kind: Always play three of a kind in the 5-card formation except break up three aces.

Full house: Split 3 of a kind to the 5-card formation and 1 pair to the 2-card formation, unless there is a pair of 2's and an ace/king can be played in the 2-card formation. In this case, play ACE KING in the 2-card formation.

Full house with three of a kind and two pairs: Play the highest pair in the 2-card formation.

Three of a kind twice: Always play highest pair in the 2-card formation.

Straights, flushes, straight flushes, and royal flushes: Always play straight or flush in the 5-card formation, except play as a two pair if one of the following:
-Any two pair and an ace singleton.
-Pair of jacks and pair of 6's.
-Pair of aces and any other pair.
With a six or seven card straight or flush put the highest hand possible in the 2-card formation while maintaining the straight or flush in the 5-card formation. Play straight or flush over straight flush to improve the 2-card formation hand to jack or better. Play straight or flush over royal flush to improve the 2-card hand to king or better.
-If 'straight and 1 pair' or 'flush and 1 pair', send the pair to the 2-card hand;

Four of a kind: Play according to the rank of the four of a kind:
-2 through 6: Always keep them together in the 5-card formation;
-7 through 10: Split (a pair goes to the 2-card formation and a pair to the 5-card formation), unless an ace or better can be played in the 2-card formation;
-Jack through king: Split (a pair goes to the 2-card formation and a pair to the 5-card formation), unless hand also contains a pair of 10's or higher.
-Aces: Split (a pair goes to the 2-card formation and a pair to the 5-card formation), unless a pair of 7's or higher can be played in the 2-card formation.

Five aces: Split (a pair goes to the 2-card formation and 3 aces will go to the 5-card formation), unless pair of kings can be played in the 2-card formation.
