I wish someone would invent Pai gow tri-ominoes. If any game needs to be made more complex, it's Pai gow tiles.

Nathan... For a second there I got excited. I thought you found a new Pai gow variant where you are given a small portfolio of stocks to arrange after making a bet.

Pai Gow Poker is fun and relatively easy.

This Pai Gow (Tiles) stuff is for those who do theoretical physics and crossword puzzles in their head. House Way? The House Way is to bamboozle.

Here is another gambling question I have but don't want to go to Google. ;) What is UTH? I see it here from time to time but I don't know what it is. I vaguely wondered if it was Ultimate Vulture X, but I thought, "No, that's UVX!" :/

Pai Gow Tiles is one of those "easy to learn, hard to master" games.

The rankings of the tiles and the four-step basic strategy can be learned in a few hours, and that will get you to the table.

Then after that you can get as complicated as you want learning the hardcore strategies and exceptions and all that stuff.

What is a Bad Beat? For one particular local casino promotion, they were promoting Bad Beat. I was like,"Isn't "bad" well bad? Why would you want a Bad Beat? ! I really don't want to go look it up on Google. ;)

A bad beat usually refers to a poker based game where the player loses even though they have a hand that typically wins. On most poker based table games where the dealer takes a hand, it is a side bet. In live poker rooms part of each pot is raked into a jackpot. Usually in live poker it requires losing with quads. Table games have various paytables.

It is subjective I guess but its best described as a hand that when the poker player loses, he almost groans because it was such a stellar sure-to-be-a-winner hand that he had but an opponent worked some sort of miracle victory.

I think different poker rooms define it differently and have rules of minimum pots, etc. but usually the winner gets a pretty penny and the loser gets some plus everyone at the table shares and sometimes everyone in the poker room at that moment gets a share.

In some poker rooms players play more for the special jackpots than the game itself and this is often the death knell of a poker room.
