Caribbean Poker Rules and Hints

Online poker has become globally famous recently, with televised tournaments and celebrity poker game events. The games universal appeal, though, stretches back quite a bit farther than its television scores. Over the years several variants on the original poker game have been created, including a handful of games that are not really poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of these games. Regardless of the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely resembling blackjack than traditional poker, in that the gamblers wager against the house instead of each other. The winning hands, are the traditional poker hands. There is no bluffing or other kinds of deceptiveness. In Caribbean stud poker, you are required to pay up prior to the croupier declares "No more bets." At that point, both you and the house and of course every one of the other gamblers are given five cards each. After you have seen your hand and the bank’s 1st card, you have to either make a call wager or surrender. The call bet’s value is equal to your beginning bet, meaning that the risks will have doubled. Giving Up means that your bet goes instantly to the bank. After the wager comes the face off. If the house doesn’t have ace/king or greater, your bet is given back, including an amount equal to the ante. If the bank does have ace/king or greater, you succeed if your hand is greater than the bank’s hand. The casino pays chips even with your wager and controlled expectations on your call wager. These expectations are:

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