Caribbean Poker Protocols and Pointers

[ English | Deutsch | Español | Français | Italiano ]

Online poker has become globally celebrated as of late, with televised championships and celebrity poker game shows. The games universal appeal, though, arcs back in reality a bit further than its TV scores. Over the years many variants on the original poker game have been developed, including a few games that are not in reality poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is 1 of these games. Regardless of the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely resembling vingt-et-un than old guard poker, in that the players wager against the house instead of the other players. The winning hands, are the long-standing poker hands. There is little conniving or different types of deception. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to pay up just before the dealer saying "No more bets." At that point, both you and the bank and of course all of the other players receive five cards each. Once you have observed your hand and the bank’s first card, you must in turn make a call wager or give up. The call bet’s amount is on same level to your original wager, meaning that the stakes will have increased two fold. Surrendering means that your wager goes immediately to the casino. After the wager comes the showdown. If the casino does not have ace/king or greater, your wager is given back, including a sum on par with the original wager. If the bank has a hand with ace/king or better, you win if your hand defeats the bank’s hand. The house pays cash even with your ante and set expectations on your call wager. These odds are:

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