Caribbean Poker Codes and Tips

Online poker has become world famous recently, with televised tournaments and celebrity poker game events. Its popularity, though, arcs back quite a bit further than its TV scores. Over the years many types on the first poker game have been created, including a handful of games that are not quite poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of the above-mentioned games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely related to blackjack than old guard poker, in that the players bet against the casino rather than the other players. The succeeding hands, are the traditional poker hands. There is no conniving or other kinds of deception. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to pay up just before the dealer declares "No further wagers." At that point, both you and the house and of course every one of the other gamblers receive five cards. After you have observed your hand and the dealer’s first card, you have to in turn make a call wager or give up. The call wager’s value is on same level to your beginning bet, meaning that the stakes will have doubled. Bowing out means that your ante goes immediately to the dealer. After the bet comes the showdown. If the casino does not have ace/king or greater, your bet is returned, plus a sum in accordance with the original wager. If the bank has a hand with ace/king or better, you win if your hand beats the dealer’s hand. The house pays cash even with your original bet and fixed odds on your call bet. These odds are:

  • Equal for a pair or high card
  • two to one for two pairs
  • 3-1 for three of a kind
  • four to one for a straight
  • five to one for a flush
  • 7-1 for a full house
  • 20-1 for a 4 of a kind
  • fifty to one for a straight flush
