Caribbean Poker Rules and Hints

[ English ]

Online poker has become globally famous lately, with televised championships and celebrity poker game events. The games universal appeal, though, arcs back in reality a bit further than its television ratings. Over the years numerous variants on the first poker game have been developed, including a handful of games that are not quite poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of these particular games. Regardless of the name, Caribbean stud poker is most closely affiliated with blackjack than traditional poker, in that the gamblers wager against the bank rather than the other players. The winning hands, are the established poker hands. There is little conniving or other kinds of boondoggle. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to ante up before the dealer saying "No more wagers." At that instance, both you and the bank and of course all of the different gamblers attain 5 cards each. Once you have observed your hand and the bank’s initial card, you have to either make a call bet or surrender. The call wager’s value is equal to your original bet, meaning that the risks will have increased two fold. Abandoning means that your bet goes immediately to the dealer. After the wager is the showdown. If the casino does not have ace/king or better, your bet is given back, with a figure equal to the original bet. If the house has a hand with ace/king or better, you win if your hand is greater than the dealer’s hand. The dealer pays out money even with your ante and fixed expectations on your call wager. These expectations are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • 2-1 for 2 pairs
  • 3-1 for three of a kind
  • four to one for a straight
  • 5-1 for a flush
  • seven to one for a full house
  • 20-1 for a four of a kind
  • fifty to one for a straight flush
  • 100-1 for a royal flush
