Poker has become globally celebrated as of late, with televised competitions and celebrity poker game shows. The games universal appeal, though, arcs back in reality a bit further than its TV scores. Over the years many types on the earliest poker game have been developed, including a handful of games that are not really poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is 1 of the above-mentioned games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is most closely related to chemin de fer than old guard poker, in that the players bet against the bank instead of each other. The winning hands, are the traditional poker hands. There is no bluffing or other types of concealment. In Caribbean stud poker, you are required to pay up prior to the dealer broadcasting "No further wagers." At that point, both you and the house and of course every one of the different players receive 5 cards each. After you have observed your hand and the casino’s first card, you need to either make a call bet or surrender. The call wager’s amount is on same level to your beginning ante, indicating that the stakes will have increased two fold. Abandoning means that your wager goes directly to the dealer. After the bet comes the showdown. If the house doesn’t have ace/king or greater, your bet is returned, including a sum equal to the ante. If the bank does have ace/king or better, you win if your hand beats the casino’s hand. The bank pony’s up cash even with your ante and set expectations on your call wager. These expectations are:

  • Equal 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 four of a kind
