Caribbean Poker Regulations and Tricks

Poker has become globally celebrated lately, with televised championships and celebrity poker game shows. Its popularity, though, stretches back quite a bit farther than its TV ratings. Over the years several variants on the first poker game have been created, including some games that are not really poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is 1 of these games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is most closely related to chemin de fer than traditional poker, in that the gamblers bet against the house instead of each other. The succeeding hands, are the long-standing poker hands. There is no conniving or other kinds of bamboozlement. In Caribbean stud poker, you are required to ante up just before the croupier broadcasting "No more bets." At that instance, both you and the dealer and of course every one of the other gamblers acquire five cards each. After you have looked at your hand and the bank’s first card, you must in turn make a call bet or accede. The call bet’s value is equal to your original ante, meaning that the risks will have doubled. Giving Up means that your bet goes immediately to the bank. After the wager comes the face off. If the house doesn’t have ace/king or greater, your wager is given back, plus a sum in accordance with the initial bet. If the house has a hand with ace/king or greater, you win if your hand is greater than the bank’s hand. The house pays money even with your original bet and set odds on your call wager. These expectations are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • two to one for 2 pairs
  • 3-1 for three of a kind
  • four to one for a straight
  • 5-1 for a flush
  • seven to one for a full house
  • 20-1 for a 4 of a kind
  • 50-1 for a straight flush
