Do you know how to play Cho Tai Tee? I just found out this popular card game is also known as Hong Kong Poker or Big Two. My friend Dommie taught me how to play this very interesting card game when we were colleagues in NST. We were bored one fine rainy afternoon and decided to play cards. I immediately caught on and since then, Cho Tai Tee remains as a favourite card game to play whenever we have friends over.
It's a little similar to the usual poker I also love playing so we do see pair, three of a kind, four of a kind coming into play. The biggest card in this game is 2 and the smallest card is 3 of diamonds. Whoever holds the 3 of diamonds will start the game and the winner is the first player who gets rid of all cards in hand.
The last time my friends and I played Cho Tai Tee, I lost...as usual. My cards were terrible and I could not do much but minimize my loss. Nonetheless it was an awesome night because once you start dealing those cards, it is very hard to stop. We can play for hours on end and usually stops when one of us is too tired or sleepy to continue playing!
I'm always a little confused when it comes to Poker rules but Hong Kong Poker is easier for me somehow. So I was happy to chance upon PokerOwnage, which is an awesome poker blog, written by die-hard poker fans. They work hard at blogging but they play hard too at bringing players and fans the latest in Online Poker News. Here, you can find out the latest poker updates, hold your own poker talks in the forums and even catch some poker gossip and rumours. I do need a little Poker brush-up before our next card session so PokerOwnage is a great find this hot Friday morning!
