Chinese poker is a rather different game than the traditional Western poker widely played all over the world, like Texas Hold’em or Omaha and even Free Ride. In Chinese poker, instead of just five or seven cards, players are dealt 13 cards and the goal in the game is to arrange them into two hands of five cards and the last hand would for the three cards left. These are called “back,” “middle” and “front” hands; all ranked from best to worst accordingly. Chinese poker uses 52 cards and can be played by a maximum of four people. Once the players on a table agree on the stake, the cards are cut, shuffled and dealt.
