Caribbean Poker Codes and Tips

Poker has become globally famous lately, with televised tournaments and celebrity poker game shows. The games universal appeal, though, stretches back quite a bit further than its TV ratings. Over the years many variants on the first poker game have been developed, including a handful of games that are not in reality poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of the above-mentioned games. Regardless of the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely related to blackjack than long-standing poker, in that the players bet against the house rather than the other players. The succeeding hands, are the long-standing poker hands. There is little concealment or other kinds of deceptiveness. In Caribbean stud poker, you are required to ante up prior to the croupier announcing "No more wagers." At that instance, both you and the house and of course every one of the different players are given five cards. After you have seen your hand and the dealer’s first card, you must either make a call bet or accede. The call wager’s amount is akin to your original wager, indicating that the stakes will have increased two fold. Surrendering means that your wager goes instantaneously to the casino. After the bet comes the showdown. If the house doesn’t have ace/king or better, your wager is returned, plus an amount on par with the original bet. If the house does have ace/king or greater, you win if your hand beats the casino’s hand. The house pony’s up chips even with your initial bet and controlled odds on your call bet. These odds are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • 2-1 for two pairs
  • three to one for 3 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
  • fifty to one for a straight flush
  • one hundred to one for a royal flush
