Caribbean Poker Regulations and Hints

Poker has become globally acclaimed as of late, with televised events and celebrity poker game shows. The games universal appeal, though, stretches back quite a bit farther than its television ratings. Over the years numerous variants on the original poker game have been developed, including a few 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 affiliated with vingt-et-un than long-standing poker, in that the gamblers wager against the bank instead of each other. The winning hands, are the established poker hands. There is no conniving or other kinds of boondoggle. In Caribbean stud poker, you are required to ante up just before the dealer announcing "No more wagers." At that point, both you and the bank and of course every one of the different players attain 5 cards. After you have seen your hand and the dealer’s initial card, you have to in turn make a call bet or give up. The call bet’s amount is equal to your beginning ante, meaning that the stakes will have increased two fold. Bowing out means that your wager goes directly to the house. After the bet comes the face off. If the bank doesn’t have ace/king or better, your wager is returned, plus a sum equal to the ante. If the house does have ace/king or better, you win if your hand is greater than the bank’s hand. The dealer pays money even with your initial bet and controlled odds on your call wager. 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
  • 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
  • 100-1 for a royal flush
