Caribbean Poker Regulations and Pointers

July 27th, 2016 No comments

Online poker has become world acclaimed lately, with televised tournaments and celebrity poker game events. Its popularity, though, arcs back in fact a bit farther than its television scores. Over the years many variations on the original poker game have been developed, including some games that are not quite poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of these particular games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely affiliated with chemin de fer than long-standing poker, in that the gamblers bet against the casino rather than the other players. The winning hands, are the established poker hands. There is little bluffing or other types of concealment. In Caribbean stud poker, you are required to ante up before the dealer saying "No further bets." At that moment, both you and the dealer and of course all of the other gamblers acquire five cards. Once you have looked at your hand and the dealer’s first card, you must in turn make a call wager or give up. The call wager’s value is equal to your beginning wager, indicating that the risks will have increased two fold. Bowing out means that your bet goes instantly to the casino. After the bet comes the conclusion. If the house doesn’t have ace/king or better, your bet is given back, including an amount on par with the ante. If the bank has a hand with ace/king or better, you win if your hand defeats the dealer’s hand. The house pays money even with your wager and set expectations on your call bet. These odds are:

  • Even 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
  • 7-1 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
