    Palms is taking the Station card now for tables & Slots.

    I played some Pai Gow Poker there and was surprised at their house rules at Pai Gow, in particular that they will play small pairs together if they have a King to play up top. I've never played Pai Gow ANYWHERE (including other Station casinos) where they didn't split small pairs if they didn't have an Ace to play up top...

    They had a plastic covered sheet at the table that the dealer showed me that did say keep small pairs together with King or higher to play on top.. Never seen that before as the house rule.

    Most places split low pairs and only put them together if they have an Ace up top. I've seen them put low pairs together if they have a King or higher up top at Ballys AC and Sands in PA.

    Most MLife casinos keep small pairs (6s and under) together no matter what.

    I've seen hands where the dealer has two little pairs on the bottom and like a 7,8 on top.

    I've never seen a casino in Vegas play 2 pairs on the bottom and garbage on top. But I've never played PaiGow at one of the MLife casinos...I would think that the house has better odds by splitting them..

    What I also find odd is that the House Way is different at each of the Station Casinos. You would think that each of their casinos would set the house cards exactly the same way, but they don't.
