I've attached some screen shots from Pai Gow Poker at Player's Vegas. Note that the dealer has straights with the same range of cards as I do. In one case, all 7 cards are the same value. Tie's go to the dealer, so this prevents the dealer from losing or causes him to win. This has been happening to me far more than statiscally expected. At one point, the dealer tied 4 hands in a row, each one preventing me from getting a win.
