Caribbean Poker Rules and Pointers

Online poker has become globally famous as of late, with televised tournaments and celebrity poker game shows. Its popularity, though, arcs back in fact a bit further than its TV ratings. Over the years many variations on the original poker game have been created, including some games that are not quite poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is 1 of the above-mentioned games. Regardless of the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely affiliated with blackjack than traditional poker, in that the players wager against the dealer instead of the other players. The winning hands, are the established poker hands. There is little concealment or other types of deceptiveness. In Caribbean stud poker, you are required to pay up before the croupier announcing "No more wagers." At that moment, both you and the dealer and of course all of the other gamblers acquire 5 cards each. Once you have seen your hand and the casino’s initial card, you must in turn make a call wager or bow out. The call wager’s amount is on same level to your beginning ante, which means that the risks will have doubled. Surrendering means that your ante goes instantly to the house. After the bet is the face off. If the bank doesn’t have ace/king or better, your bet is returned, with a figure on par with the ante. If the bank has a hand with ace/king or greater, you win if your hand is greater than the casino’s hand. The dealer pays cash even with your original bet and fixed odds on your call wager. These expectations are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • two to one for 2 pairs
  • 3-1 for three of a kind
  • 4-1 for a straight
  • five to one for a flush
  • 7-1 for a full house
  • 20-1 for a four of a kind
  • 50-1 for a straight flush
  • one hundred to one for a royal flush
