Caribbean Poker Regulations and Tricks

Web poker has become world acclaimed lately, with televised events and celebrity poker game events. Its popularity, though, arcs back quite a bit further than its TV scores. Over the years several variants on the first poker game have been created, including some games that are not in reality poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of the above-mentioned games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely affiliated with blackjack than long-standing poker, in that the gamblers bet against the house rather than the other players. The winning hands, are the traditional poker hands. There is no bluffing or different types of concealment. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to pay up just before the dealer saying "No more bets." At that moment, both you and the house and of course every one of the other players receive 5 cards each. After you have observed your hand and the dealer’s initial card, you have to either make a call wager or surrender. The call wager’s value is equal to your original bet, which means that the risks will have increased two fold. Abandoning means that your wager goes instantly to the casino. After the wager is the face off. If the dealer doesn’t have ace/king or better, your bet is given back, including a sum equal to the ante. If the house has a hand with ace/king or greater, you succeed if your hand beats the bank’s hand. The house pays out money equal to your ante and set odds on your call wager. These odds are:

  • Equal for a pair or high card
  • two to one for two pairs
  • 3-1 for 3 of a kind
  • 4-1 for a straight
  • 5-1 for a flush
  • 7-1 for a full house
  • twenty to one for a four of a kind
  • fifty to one for a straight flush
  • 100-1 for a royal flush
