Caribbean Poker Rules and Hints

Internet poker has become world famous lately, with televised championships and celebrity poker game shows. Its universal appeal, though, arcs back quite a bit further than its TV scores. Over the years many variations on the earliest poker game have been developed, including a few games that are not really poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of these particular games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely related to 21 than long-standing poker, in that the gamblers bet against the dealer rather than the other players. The succeeding hands, are the established poker hands. There is little conniving or other types of deceptiveness. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to pay up before the dealer saying "No further bets." At that instance, both you and the dealer and of course all of the different players are given 5 cards each. Once you have seen your hand and the dealer’s first card, you must either make a call wager or accede. The call bet’s value is on same level to your original wager, meaning that the risks will have doubled. Giving Up means that your wager goes immediately to the dealer. After the bet comes the face off. If the casino doesn’t have ace/king or greater, your wager is returned, with an amount in accordance with the initial bet. If the dealer does have ace/king or greater, you succeed if your hand defeats the dealer’s hand. The casino pays cash even with your ante and fixed expectations on your call wager. These expectations are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • two to one for two pairs
  • 3-1 for 3 of a kind
  • four to one for a straight
  • five to one 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
  • one hundred to one for a royal flush
