Caribbean Poker Protocols and Pointers

Poker has become globally famous recently, with televised events and celebrity poker game shows. The games popularity, though, stretches back in reality a bit further than its television scores. Over the years numerous variations on the earliest poker game have been created, including a handful of games that are not quite poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is 1 of these particular games. Regardless of the name, Caribbean stud poker is most closely resembling vingt-et-un than long-standing poker, in that the gamblers bet against the house instead of the other players. The winning hands, are the established poker hands. There is no concealment or different types of boondoggle. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to pay up before the dealer saying "No further bets." At that moment, both you and the dealer and of course all of the different gamblers acquire 5 cards each. Once you have observed your hand and the casino’s first card, you need to either make a call wager or surrender. The call bet’s amount is equal to your original wager, which means that the risks will have doubled. Surrendering means that your bet goes directly to the bank. After the wager is the showdown. If the bank doesn’t have ace/king or greater, your bet is given back, including a sum equal to the ante. If the casino has a hand with ace/king or better, you succeed if your hand is greater than the bank’s hand. The house pays out cash equal to your initial bet and set expectations on your call wager. These expectations are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • 2-1 for two pairs
  • 3-1 for three of a kind
  • 4-1 for a straight
  • 5-1 for a flush
  • seven to one for a full house
  • 20-1 for a four of a kind
  • fifty to one for a straight flush
  • one hundred to one for a royal flush
