September 10th, 2015 Leave a comment Go to comments

Internet poker has become world acclaimed lately, with televised tournaments and celebrity poker game shows. The games universal appeal, though, arcs back in fact a bit further than its TV scores. Over the years many variants on the first poker game have been developed, including a few games that are not quite poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is 1 of the above-mentioned games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is most closely resembling vingt-et-un than traditional poker, in that the players wager against the bank rather than each other. The winning hands, are the traditional poker hands. There is no concealment or other kinds of deceptiveness. In Caribbean stud poker, you are required to ante up prior to the dealer announcing "No more wagers." At that point, both you and the casino and of course all of the different players are given five cards each. Once you have observed your hand and the dealer’s initial card, you need to in turn make a call wager or surrender. The call wager’s amount is equal to your original bet, indicating that the stakes will have increased two fold. Abandoning means that your ante goes immediately to the dealer. After the bet comes the showdown. If the casino does not have ace/king or better, your wager is returned, including a figure on par with the ante. If the casino does have ace/king or greater, you win if your hand is greater than the dealer’s hand. The bank pays chips equal to your ante and fixed odds on your call bet. These odds are:

  • Equal for a pair or high card
  • two to one for two pairs
  • 3-1 for 3 of a kind
  • 4-1 for a straight
  • 5-1 for a flush
  • seven to one for a full house
  • 20-1 for a 4 of a kind
  • 50-1 for a straight flush
  • 100-1 for a royal flush
