Caribbean Poker Protocols and Pointers

[ English ]

Web poker has become world acclaimed lately, with televised tournaments and celebrity poker game events. The games universal appeal, though, stretches back in reality a bit further than its TV ratings. Over the years numerous variants on the first poker game have been created, including some games that are not in fact poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of these games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely resembling chemin de fer than traditional poker, in that the players bet against the dealer instead of each other. The winning hands, are the established poker hands. There is no concealment or different kinds of concealment. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to ante up before the croupier announcing "No further wagers." At that instance, both you and the house and of course all of the different gamblers acquire five cards each. After you have seen your hand and the bank’s 1st card, you must in turn make a call bet or accede. The call bet’s value is on same level to your original wager, which means that the risks will have doubled. Giving Up means that your ante goes immediately to the bank. After the bet comes the face off. If the dealer doesn’t have ace/king or greater, your wager is given back, including a sum on par with the ante. If the casino has a hand with ace/king or better, you win if your hand defeats the casino’s hand. The house pays out chips even with your ante and fixed odds on your call bet. These odds are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • two to one for two pairs
  • three to one for three of a kind
  • 4-1 for a straight
  • five to one for a flush
  • 7-1 for a full house
  • 20-1 for a four of a kind
  • 50-1 for a straight flush
  • 100-1 for a royal flush
