Caribbean Poker Regulations and Tips

Online poker has become world famous recently, with televised tournaments and celebrity poker game shows. Its universal appeal, though, arcs back in reality a bit further than its television ratings. Over the years numerous types on the original poker game have been created, including a handful of games that are not quite poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is 1 of these games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely affiliated with vingt-et-un than old guard poker, in that the players wager against the casino instead of the other players. The winning hands, are the traditional poker hands. There is no conniving or other types of bamboozlement. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to ante up just before the croupier saying "No further bets." At that point, both you and the house and of course all of the different gamblers receive 5 cards each. Once you have looked at your hand and the casino’s initial card, you have to in turn make a call wager or accede. The call wager’s amount is akin to your beginning bet, which means that the risks will have doubled. Bowing out means that your ante goes instantaneously to the house. After the bet is the face off. If the dealer does not have ace/king or better, your bet is given back, including a figure on par with the ante. If the house does have ace/king or better, you succeed if your hand beats the bank’s hand. The dealer pays out cash even with your ante and controlled odds on your call bet. These expectations are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • 2-1 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
  • 20-1 for a 4 of a kind
  • fifty to one for a straight flush
  • one hundred to one for a royal flush
