Caribbean Poker Regulations and Tricks

Online poker has become world famous lately, with televised competitions and celebrity poker game shows. Its popularity, though, arcs back quite a bit further than its TV ratings. Over the years several variations on the first poker game have been created, including some games that are not in fact poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is 1 of these games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is most closely related to blackjack than long-standing poker, in that the players bet against the dealer rather than the other players. The winning hands, are the long-standing poker hands. There is no bluffing or different kinds of deceptiveness. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to pay up prior to the dealer saying "No further bets." At that instance, both you and the casino and of course all of the other players attain five cards. Once you have seen your hand and the casino’s 1st card, you must in turn make a call wager or bow out. The call bet’s value is akin to your beginning wager, meaning that the risks will have increased two fold. Abandoning means that your bet goes directly to the house. After the bet comes the conclusion. If the dealer doesn’t have ace/king or greater, your bet is returned, with a sum equal to the original wager. If the casino does have ace/king or greater, you win if your hand beats the dealer’s hand. The house pony’s up money equal to your ante and set odds on your call bet. These odds are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • 2-1 for two pairs
  • 3-1 for three of a kind
  • 4-1 for a straight
  • 5-1 for a flush
  • 7-1 for a full house
  • 20-1 for a 4 of a kind
  • 50-1 for a straight flush
  • one hundred to one for a royal flush
