Caribbean Poker Protocols and Tricks

Poker has become world acclaimed as of late, with televised tournaments and celebrity poker game shows. The games universal appeal, though, arcs back quite a bit farther than its TV scores. Over the years several variants on the original poker game have been created, 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 resembling vingt-et-un than traditional poker, in that the gamblers wager against the casino instead of the other players. The winning hands, are the long-standing poker hands. There is little concealment or different kinds of boondoggle. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to ante up just before the croupier announcing "No more bets." At that point, both you and the dealer and of course all of the other gamblers receive five cards each. After you have observed your hand and the bank’s initial card, you have to either make a call wager or give up. The call bet’s value is akin to your beginning bet, which means that the stakes will have increased two fold. Surrendering means that your ante goes directly to the bank. After the wager is the showdown. If the house does not have ace/king or greater, your bet is given back, including a sum in accordance with the initial wager. If the bank has a hand with ace/king or greater, you succeed if your hand is greater than the casino’s hand. The bank pays money equal to your initial bet and set expectations on your call bet. These odds are:

  • Equal for a pair or high card
  • 2-1 for two pairs
  • 3-1 for three of a kind
  • 4-1 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
  • 100-1 for a royal flush
