Wan Doy has brought yet another online casino game of poker to the tables with a variation that swings somewhere in the middle of 7 Card Stud poker and 5-Card Draw poker.

With all the hype about the 44th World Series of Poker rocking the casino world we have been asking around about the best poker table games out there. One of the trends in the poker world right now is Open Face Chinese Poker and the WSOP has put this on as a non-bracelet side event. Adding to this is a super high stakes online game of Open Face Chinese Poker with $3,000 a pop hands. Gus Hansen and Tom “Durrrr” Dwan have both been getting their hands dirty in this super high roller showdown, so going with the theme of all things Chinese Wan Doy Pairs Poker has come into the limelight straight out of the Barcrest design camp.

Instead of the usual 5 card hand rankings that most poker games play out, Wan Doy’s total reinvention of poker encompasses a 7 card winning hand plus the dealer always plays in this version. Once again Wan Doy Poker’s “Dealer Always Plays” rule reinvents most casino poker table games that usually encompass a rule that the dealer doesn’t qualify in certain below par hand ranking scenarios.
 

 
Wan Doy resembles 7-Card Stud because players have 7 cards to play with, but in Stud games the players are dealt 3 cards initially and 4 cards in separate streets. However, in Wan Doy Pairs Poker the cards are dealt straight to the player resembling the way 5-Card Draw is played. With 7 cards players have extended hand rankings where they can get a massive full-house hand that includes quads and trips in one hand. In normal 5-card poker rankings a full house, known as a ‘Boat’, is a pair and a 3 of a kind, but in Wan Doy the hands take a another step up the poker ladder to give players the ultimate Royal Flushes, Broadways and Boats.
 
Players can also smash in a massive 3-pair as opposed to pokers 2-pair. In the end, all the normal 5-card poker hands count in Wan Doy, but the 7-card system extends this into a more exciting version of poker still using just a 52-card deck.
 
The betting is simple as players stake an “Ante” as well as a “Bonus” that is equal to the ante. Additionally, for a side bet there is an option to wager the “Jackpot. After the 7 cards are in the air, if the player likes what he/she sees, an additional “Call” bet needs to be made for the house to reveal 7 cards in a showdown. For the player a winning hand must beat the house’s hand, and if so the player gets even odds on the ante and a pay-out according to the “Bonus Pays Player’s Hand” odds chart.
 
For the jackpot bet things are spiced up a little more. Staking this option means the player wagers on the house and his/her own hand. If the dealer wins with a 3 pair for instance, the Jackpot bet will be paid out at 12-1 and the same odds apply vice versa.

Poker has been one of the most popular games for stakes for years, and with the Chinese, Korean and other versions of the games hitting the tables the online casinos are always at forefront of getting the games out to their players as soon as the software designers make them available. Watch out for No Deposit Bonus codes because you could use yours to give Wan Doy Poker a whirl.
