Caribbean Poker Regulations and Hints

Poker has become world acclaimed as of late, with televised competitions and celebrity poker game shows. Its popularity, though, arcs back in fact a bit further than its TV scores. Over the years several variations on the earliest poker game have been developed, including a few games that are not in reality poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of the above-mentioned games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely affiliated with blackjack than traditional poker, in that the players bet against the casino rather than the other players. The winning hands, are the traditional poker hands. There is no concealment or other kinds of deception. In Caribbean stud poker, you are required to ante up just before the croupier announcing "No more wagers." At that instance, both you and the dealer and of course all of the other players attain five cards. Once you have observed your hand and the dealer’s first card, you need to either make a call wager or give up. The call bet’s value is akin to your beginning bet, which means that the risks will have increased two fold. Giving Up means that your ante goes instantaneously to the dealer. After the wager comes the conclusion. If the bank doesn’t have ace/king or better, your wager is returned, plus a sum equal to the ante. If the house does have ace/king or better, you succeed if your hand beats the dealer’s hand. The dealer pony’s up chips even with your initial bet and controlled expectations on your call bet. These expectations are:

  • Equal for a pair or high card
  • 2-1 for 2 pairs
  • 3-1 for three of a kind
  • four to one for a straight
  • five to one for a flush
  • seven to one for a full house
  • twenty to one for a 4 of a kind
  • 50-1 for a straight flush
  • 100-1 for a royal flush
