Caribbean Poker Rules and Hints

Online poker has become globally celebrated lately, with televised championships and celebrity poker game events. Its universal appeal, though, stretches back in fact a bit further than its television scores. Over the years several variations on the earliest poker game have been created, including some games that are not quite poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is 1 of these games. Regardless of the name, Caribbean stud poker is most closely affiliated with 21 than traditional poker, in that the players wager against the dealer rather than the other players. The winning hands, are the established poker hands. There is no concealment or different types of bamboozlement. In Caribbean stud poker, you are required to pay up just before the dealer saying "No more bets." At that point, both you and the bank and of course every one of the different gamblers are given five cards each. Once you have looked at your hand and the dealer’s first card, you have to in turn make a call bet or surrender. The call wager’s amount is equal to your original bet, which means that the risks will have doubled. Bowing out means that your wager goes directly to the dealer. After the bet is the showdown. If the house doesn’t have ace/king or better, your bet is given back, with a sum on par with the ante. If the bank has a hand with ace/king or better, you succeed if your hand beats the casino’s hand. The bank pays out cash equal to your original bet and fixed odds on your call bet. These odds are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • 2-1 for 2 pairs
  • 3-1 for 3 of a kind
  • 4-1 for a straight
  • 5-1 for a flush
