Caribbean Poker Rules and Tips

by Ali on January 4th, 2010

Online poker has become globally famous recently, with televised tournaments and celebrity poker game shows. Its popularity, though, arcs back in fact a bit farther than its TV ratings. Over the years many variants on the earliest poker game have been created, including some games that are not quite poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is 1 of these particular games. Regardless of 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 the other players. The succeeding hands, are the traditional poker hands. There is little conniving or different kinds of boondoggle. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to pay up prior to the dealer broadcasting "No more bets." At that instance, both you and the casino and of course every one of the other players are given 5 cards each. Once you have seen your hand and the dealer’s initial card, you need to either make a call wager or surrender. The call bet’s amount is on same level to your original bet, meaning that the risks will have doubled. Surrendering means that your wager goes directly to the house. After the bet comes the face off. If the bank does not have ace/king or greater, your wager is given back, including an amount on par with the original bet. If the bank has a hand with ace/king or greater, you succeed if your hand is greater than the bank’s hand. The casino pony’s up chips even with your initial bet and set expectations on your call wager. These odds are:

  • Equal for a pair or high card
  • two to one for 2 pairs
  • three to one for 3 of a kind
  • four to one for a straight
  • five to one for a flush
  • 7-1 for a full house
  • twenty to one for a 4 of a kind
  • fifty to one for a straight flush
  • 100-1 for a royal flush
