Caribbean Poker Regulations and Pointers

Internet poker has become globally famous recently, with televised competitions and celebrity poker game shows. Its universal appeal, though, stretches back quite a bit further than its television scores. Over the years numerous variations 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 most closely related to blackjack than old guard poker, in that the players bet against the bank rather than each other. The winning hands, are the established poker hands. There is little conniving or different kinds of concealment. In Caribbean stud poker, you are required to ante up just before the croupier broadcasting "No more wagers." At that instance, both you and the bank and of course every one of the other gamblers receive 5 cards. Once you have seen your hand and the bank’s initial card, you have to in turn make a call wager or accede. The call wager’s amount is akin to your original wager, meaning that the risks will have doubled. Abandoning means that your bet goes directly to the bank. After the bet comes the showdown. If the house does not have ace/king or better, your wager is given back, with a sum in accordance with the initial wager. If the casino has a hand with ace/king or greater, you succeed if your hand is greater than the dealer’s hand. The casino pays chips even with your bet and set expectations on your call wager. These expectations are:

  • Equal 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
  • 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
