• Caribbean Poker Regulations and Tips

    [ English ]

    Internet poker has become globally celebrated as of late, with televised championships and celebrity poker game shows. Its universal appeal, though, stretches back quite a bit farther than its TV scores. Over the years many variations on the earliest poker game have been created, including a few games that are not in fact poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of these particular games. Regardless of the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely resembling chemin de fer 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 boondoggle. In Caribbean stud poker, you are required to pay up prior to the dealer announcing "No further bets." At that point, both you and the casino and of course every one of the other players are given 5 cards each. After you have looked at your hand and the dealer’s 1st card, you must either make a call wager or surrender. The call wager’s amount is akin to your original ante, which means that the risks will have increased two fold. Bowing out means that your wager goes instantly to the casino. After the bet is the face off. If the dealer doesn’t have ace/king or better, your wager is given back, with an amount on par with the ante. If the dealer does have ace/king or greater, you succeed if your hand is greater than the dealer’s hand. The casino pays out cash even with your ante and fixed expectations on your call wager. These expectations are:

    • Even for a pair or high card
    • 2-1 for 2 pairs
    • 3-1 for 3 of a kind
    • 4-1 for a straight
    • 5-1 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
    • one hundred to one for a royal flush
