I've been playing a lot of Pai Gow Poker recently, almost as much as Baccarat. Pai Gow Poker is a much slower game and by setting my hands, I feel more like I'm doing something, like I'm creating a win. In Baccarat (still my favorite game) it's more intuitive, it's less work as far as thinking, it's more about sensing my bets and watching the monitor for possible patterns. Anyway, I played Pai Gow Poker earlier tonight for a while, again I came out ahead by a hair because I chose to stop while ahead, though I could've kept going. I remember a couple of my hands and I wanted your opinion. I had AAA in one hand and I played them together with a J9 as my low hand. The nice Asian man next to me said I should've played AJ as my low hand and keep the two Aces on the high hand. Is that better strategy? I was going for a win with the three Aces and thought J9 was good enough to win or at least give me a push. Another hand I was "corrected" on was 10-10-10-7-7-K-4. I wanted to go strong with the full house, so I put the K4 as my low hand. I was told I should've played the two 7s as the low hand instead. Another similar hand was two low pairs, I think they were 66 and 33. I played them together with a Q5 as my low hand. Again I was told I should've played the 33 as my low hand. In all the above hands I got a push. I tend to want to play strong hands in the high position in order to almost guarantee me a push and hopefully a win. I'm kind of afraid to split too much thinking I have a better chance of losing that way. Is my thinking wrong here?
