Caribbean Poker Regulations and Tips

Poker has become world celebrated as of late, with televised tournaments and celebrity poker game shows. The games universal appeal, though, stretches back quite a bit farther than its TV ratings. 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 the above-mentioned games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely related to chemin de fer than traditional poker, in that the gamblers wager against the bank rather than each other. The succeeding hands, are the established poker hands. There is no concealment or different types of boondoggle. In Caribbean stud poker, you are required to pay up prior to the croupier announcing "No more wagers." At that moment, both you and the casino and of course all of the other players acquire five cards each. Once you have looked at your hand and the casino’s 1st card, you must either make a call wager or accede. The call bet’s value is equal to your original wager, indicating that the risks will have doubled. Bowing out means that your ante goes instantaneously to the house. After the wager is the showdown. If the house doesn’t have ace/king or better, your wager is returned, including an amount equal to the ante. If the dealer does have ace/king or greater, you succeed if your hand beats the casino’s hand. The casino pays chips even with your bet and set expectations on your call bet. 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 4 of a kind
  • fifty to one for a straight flush
  • 100-1 for a royal flush
