Online poker has become world acclaimed recently, with televised championships and celebrity poker game shows. The games universal appeal, though, arcs back in fact a bit further than its TV ratings. Over the years many variations on the original poker game have been developed, including some games that are not really poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is 1 of these games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is most closely resembling 21 than long-standing poker, in that the gamblers bet against the house instead of the other players. The succeeding hands, are the traditional poker hands. There is no bluffing or other kinds of bamboozlement. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to ante up prior to the croupier saying "No more wagers." At that instance, both you and the bank and of course every one of the different gamblers receive 5 cards each. After you have observed your hand and the dealer’s 1st card, you need to either make a call wager or surrender. The call bet’s value is equal to your original wager, meaning that the risks will have increased two fold. Surrendering means that your ante goes directly to the casino. After the bet is the showdown. If the house doesn’t have ace/king or better, your bet is given back, including a sum equal to the ante. If the bank has a hand with ace/king or better, you succeed if your hand beats the bank’s hand. The house pony’s up chips even with your ante and controlled odds on your call bet. These odds are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • 2-1 for 2 pairs
  • three to one for 3 of a kind
  • 4-1 for a straight
  • five to one for a flush
  • seven to one for a full house
  • 20-1 for a four of a kind
  • fifty to one for a straight flush
  • 100-1 for a royal flush
