The odds for Pai Gow are slightly more challenging to determine than ordinary poker due to the fact that both the player and the dealer receive seven cards. These cards are then separated into two hands, making it more complex. The house edge is placed at approximately 2.3%, although in order to play the game as close to this edge as possible, a lot of practice is required.
