Caribbean Poker Protocols and Hints

[ English ]

Web poker has become globally celebrated lately, with televised championships and celebrity poker game events. Its universal appeal, though, stretches back in fact a bit farther than its television ratings. Over the years numerous variants on the original poker game have been created, including some 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 chemin de fer than traditional poker, in that the gamblers bet against the house rather than each other. The succeeding hands, are the traditional poker hands. There is little concealment or other types of concealment. In Caribbean stud poker, you are required to pay up prior to the dealer announcing "No further wagers." At that instance, both you and the house and of course all of the different gamblers receive 5 cards each. After you have observed your hand and the bank’s first card, you must either make a call bet or surrender. The call wager’s amount is akin to your beginning wager, meaning that the risks will have increased two fold. Surrendering means that your bet goes directly to the casino. After the wager comes the showdown. If the bank doesn’t have ace/king or greater, your bet is given back, with a sum on par with the initial wager. If the casino has a hand with ace/king or greater, you win if your hand defeats the dealer’s hand. The casino pays chips even with your bet and fixed expectations on your call bet. These odds are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • two to one for two pairs
  • three to one for three of a kind
  • four to one for a straight
  • five to one for a flush
  • 7-1 for a full house
  • twenty to one for a four of a kind
  • 50-1 for a straight flush
  • 100-1 for a royal flush
