Caribbean Poker Rules and Hints

Web poker has become world famous lately, with televised competitions and celebrity poker game shows. Its popularity, though, arcs back quite a bit further than its TV ratings. Over the years numerous variations on the earliest poker game have been created, including a handful of games that are not quite poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of the above-mentioned games. Regardless of the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely resembling twenty-one than long-standing poker, in that the gamblers bet against the dealer rather than the other players. The winning hands, are the long-standing poker hands. There is no conniving or different types of bamboozlement. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to pay up just before the croupier declares "No more bets." At that point, both you and the bank and of course all of the different gamblers attain 5 cards each. Once you have looked at your hand and the bank’s first card, you must either make a call wager or accede. The call wager’s value is on same level to your original bet, meaning that the stakes will have doubled. Surrendering means that your ante goes instantly to the house. After the wager comes the showdown. If the casino does not have ace/king or greater, your wager is returned, with a figure equal to the original wager. If the house has a hand with ace/king or greater, you win if your hand beats the dealer’s hand. The bank pony’s up chips even with your ante and set odds on your call wager. These expectations are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • 2-1 for 2 pairs
  • three to one for 3 of a kind
  • 4-1 for a straight
  • 5-1 for a flush
  • 7-1 for a full house
  • 20-1 for a 4 of a kind
  • fifty to one for a straight flush
  • one hundred to one for a royal flush
