# Pai Gow Poker Power Ratings

## Introduction

The following two tables show how often the dealer will make each hand, according to the Trump Plaza house way. This is useful to help determine the probability that any given player hand will beat the dealer. Following are explanations of each column.

• Hand: Dealer hand
• Combinations: Number of combinations out of a possible 154,143,080 that the dealer will form this hand.
• Probability: Probabilty that the dealer will form this hand.
• Player PR: Player power rating. This is the probability that the player will win against the dealer with this hand, acting as the player (ties lose).
• Banker PR: Banker power rating. This is the probability that the player will win or tie against the dealer with this hand, acting as the banker (ties win).

To determine the value of any given hand add the power ratings for the 2-card and 5-card hands. Be sure to use the image--rightolumn according to whether you are acting as player or banker. Set the hand according to the way maximizes 0.95*(2 card PR)*(5 card PR) - (1 - 2 card PR)*(1 - 5 card PR).
