Caribbean Poker Rules and Tips

Poker has become globally famous lately, with televised events and celebrity poker game events. Its popularity, though, arcs back in fact a bit farther than its television scores. Over the years many variants on the earliest 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 affiliated with vingt-et-un than traditional poker, in that the players wager against the dealer instead of the other players. The succeeding hands, are the established poker hands. There is little concealment or other types of deceptiveness. In Caribbean stud poker, you are required to pay up before the croupier announcing "No more wagers." At that instance, both you and the casino and of course all of the different gamblers are given 5 cards each. Once you have seen your hand and the dealer’s first card, you need to either make a call bet or bow out. The call wager’s amount is equal to your original wager, meaning that the stakes will have increased two fold. Bowing out means that your bet goes instantly to the casino. After the bet comes the conclusion. If the bank does not have ace/king or greater, your bet is returned, including an amount on par with the original bet. If the dealer has a hand with ace/king or greater, you win if your hand beats the bank’s hand. The house pays money equal to your wager and controlled expectations on your call wager. These expectations are:

  • Equal for a pair or high card
  • 2-1 for 2 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
  • 100-1 for a royal flush
