Caribbean Poker Regulations and Tricks

Internet poker has become world famous as of late, with televised events and celebrity poker game events. Its popularity, though, stretches back in fact a bit farther than its TV scores. Over the years many variations on the first poker game have been created, including a few games that are not really poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of the above-mentioned games. Regardless of the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely related to twenty-one than traditional poker, in that the gamblers wager against the house rather than the other players. The winning hands, are the established poker hands. There is little conniving or different kinds of deception. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to pay up just before the croupier announcing "No more wagers." At that point, both you and the bank and of course every one of the other players are given 5 cards. Once you have observed your hand and the casino's 1st card, you have to in turn make a call wager or surrender. The call wager's amount is equal to your original ante, which means that the stakes will have increased two fold. Surrendering means that your bet goes immediately to the casino. After the bet comes the face off. If the dealer does not have ace/king or greater, your wager is returned, with a figure equal to the original wager. If the dealer does have ace/king or greater, you succeed if your hand beats the casino's hand. The dealer pays money equal to your bet and controlled expectations on your call wager. These odds are:

  • Equal for a pair or high card
  • two to one for 2 pairs
  • 3-1 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
  • one hundred to one for a royal flush
