Caribbean Poker Regulations and Pointers

Internet poker has become globally celebrated recently, with televised competitions and celebrity poker game shows. Its universal appeal, though, arcs back in reality a bit further than its television ratings. Over the years many variations on the original poker game have been developed, including a handful of games that are not quite poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is 1 of these games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is most closely affiliated with chemin de fer than long-standing poker, in that the players wager against the dealer instead of the other players. The succeeding hands, are the traditional poker hands. There is little concealment or other types of bamboozlement. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to ante up prior to the croupier saying "No more wagers." At that point, both you and the bank and of course every one of the other players are given 5 cards. Once you have observed your hand and the bank’s initial card, you have to in turn make a call wager or accede. The call bet’s value is on same level to your beginning bet, which means that the risks will have doubled. Surrendering means that your ante goes instantly to the house. After the wager comes the showdown. If the house does not have ace/king or better, your wager is given back, with a sum equal to the original bet. If the bank does have ace/king or greater, you win if your hand defeats the dealer’s hand. The bank pays money even with your wager and fixed expectations on your call wager. These expectations are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • two to one for 2 pairs
  • 3-1 for 3 of a kind
  • four to one for a straight
  • five to one for a flush
  • 7-1 for a full house
  • twenty to one for a four of a kind
  • 50-1 for a straight flush
  • one hundred to one for a royal flush
