by Ali on April 18th, 2020

Internet poker has become world celebrated lately, with televised championships and celebrity poker game shows. Its popularity, though, arcs back in fact a bit farther than its TV ratings. Over the years many types on the original poker game have been developed, including a few games that are not really poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of these games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely related to chemin de fer than old guard poker, in that the gamblers bet against the bank rather than each other. The winning hands, are the long-standing poker hands. There is little concealment or other types of boondoggle. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to ante up before the croupier broadcasting "No more bets." At that point, both you and the house and of course all of the different gamblers receive five cards. Once you have seen your hand and the casino’s 1st card, you need to in turn make a call bet or surrender. The call bet’s value is akin to your beginning ante, which means that the stakes will have doubled. Bowing out means that your ante goes instantly to the house. After the bet is the showdown. If the dealer does not have ace/king or greater, your wager is returned, plus a sum equal to the ante. If the casino has a hand with ace/king or better, you win if your hand is greater than the bank’s hand. The dealer pony’s up chips even with your ante and fixed expectations on your call wager. These expectations are:

  • Equal for a pair or high card
  • 2-1 for two pairs
  • 3-1 for 3 of a kind
  • four to one 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
