Caribbean Poker Regulations and Hints

[ English ]

Online poker has become globally acclaimed recently, with televised events and celebrity poker game shows. Its popularity, though, stretches back quite a bit further than its TV scores. Over the years several variations on the first poker game have been developed, including a few games that are not in reality poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of these games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely related to blackjack than old guard poker, in that the players wager against the casino rather than the other players. The winning hands, are the established poker hands. There is little bluffing or different kinds of boondoggle. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to ante up prior to the croupier broadcasting "No further wagers." At that point, both you and the house and of course all of the different players are given 5 cards. After you have observed your hand and the bank’s initial card, you must either make a call bet or surrender. The call bet’s value is on same level to your original ante, indicating that the stakes will have increased two fold. Bowing out means that your wager goes instantaneously to the dealer. After the wager comes the conclusion. If the house does not have ace/king or greater, your bet is returned, plus a sum equal to the ante. If the dealer has a hand with ace/king or greater, you succeed if your hand is greater than the casino’s hand. The bank pays out cash equal to your original bet and fixed expectations on your call wager. These expectations are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • two to one for 2 pairs
  • 3-1 for three of a kind
  • four to one for a straight
  • 5-1 for a flush
  • 7-1 for a full house
  • twenty to one for a 4 of a kind
  • fifty to one for a straight flush
  • one hundred to one for a royal flush
