Chinese Poker Overview

Chinese Poker is a card game that has been played in the Asian community for many years. It has begun to gain popularity in the broader world of game players because it has all the features of a good gambling game:
  • It is easy to learn. Anyone who knows the rank of Poker hands can begin playing after a few minutes of instruction.
  • There is a large element of luck, so that a beginner has a real chance of winning, even against experienced opponents. Also, it is plausible for poor players to attribute bad results to their cards rather than their plays.
  • There is still enough skill in the game that experts have a significant advantage when playing poor players.
Although it is basically a four player game, it plays well with 2, 3, 5, or even more players. It is fun to play. Unexpected results and interesting hands are common. You should be warned: many players find Chinese Poker addictive.
