Caribbean Poker Regulations and Pointers

Web poker has become world famous recently, with televised competitions and celebrity poker game shows. The games popularity, though, arcs back in fact a bit further than its TV scores. Over the years many variations on the original poker game have been developed, including some games that are not really poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of these games. Regardless of the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely related to twenty-one than long-standing poker, in that the gamblers bet against the bank instead of the other players. The winning hands, are the traditional poker hands. There is little bluffing or other kinds of bamboozlement. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to pay up before the croupier declares "No more bets." At that point, both you and the dealer and of course every one of the different players receive 5 cards each. Once you have looked at your hand and the casino’s 1st card, you need to in turn make a call bet or surrender. The call wager’s amount is on same level to your beginning ante, indicating that the stakes will have increased two fold. Bowing out means that your ante goes directly to the bank. After the wager comes the face off. If the casino doesn’t have ace/king or greater, your bet is given back, plus an amount on par with the ante. If the house does have ace/king or greater, you succeed if your hand beats the casino’s hand. The casino pays out money equal to your bet and fixed expectations on your call wager. These expectations are:

  • Equal for a pair or high card
  • 2-1 for two pairs
  • 3-1 for 3 of a kind
  • four to one for a straight
  • 5-1 for a flush
  • seven to one for a full house
  • twenty to one for a four of a kind
  • 50-1 for a straight flush
  • 100-1 for a royal flush
