Caribbean Poker Regulations and Hints

March 18th, 2018 Leave a comment Go to comments

Online poker has become globally acclaimed recently, with televised events and celebrity poker game events. The games universal appeal, though, arcs back in reality a bit further than its television scores. Over the years several variants on the original poker game have been created, including some games that are not quite poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is 1 of the above-mentioned games. Regardless of the name, Caribbean stud poker is most closely related to blackjack 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 bluffing or different kinds of deception. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to ante up before the dealer announcing "No further wagers." At that moment, both you and the casino and of course all of the different gamblers are given 5 cards each. Once you have observed your hand and the dealer’s 1st card, you need to in turn make a call wager or surrender. The call wager’s value is akin to your original ante, which means that the risks will have doubled. Bowing out means that your bet goes instantly to the bank. After the wager comes the face off. If the bank doesn’t have ace/king or better, your bet is given back, with a sum equal to the original bet. If the dealer does have ace/king or better, you win if your hand beats the dealer’s hand. The casino pony’s up money even with your wager and set odds on your call wager. These odds are:

  • Equal for a pair or high card
  • two to one for two pairs
  • three to one for three of a kind
  • four to one for a straight
  • five to one for a flush
  • seven to one for a full house
  • twenty to one for a four of a kind
  • fifty to one for a straight flush
  • one hundred to one for a royal flush
