Pai Gow

Pai Gow (牌九) is a Chinese gambling game. It is played with the Chinese dominoes tile set. The game is played in underground casinos in most Chinese communities. It is played openly in major casinos in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, in many California cardrooms and some Australian casinos.

The name "Pai Gow" is sometimes used to refer to a card game called Pai Gow Poker (or Double Hand Poker[?]), also popular in Nevada and California, and which is loosely based on the Chinese game.
