Caribbean Poker Regulations and Tricks

by Carmelo on May 10th, 2021

Online poker has become world acclaimed recently, with televised tournaments and celebrity poker game shows. Its universal appeal, though, arcs back quite a bit farther than its TV scores. Over the years several variations on the first poker game have been created, including a handful of games that are not in reality poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of these games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely affiliated with blackjack than traditional poker, in that the gamblers bet against the dealer instead of the other players. The succeeding hands, are the long-standing poker hands. There is no concealment or different types of concealment. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to ante up just before the dealer saying "No more wagers." At that moment, both you and the bank and of course every one of the different gamblers receive 5 cards each. After you have seen your hand and the bank’s 1st card, you must in turn make a call bet or give up. The call wager’s value is equal to your original wager, indicating that the risks will have increased two fold. Abandoning means that your wager goes instantly to the house. After the wager is the showdown. If the house 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 succeed if your hand defeats the casino’s hand. The bank pays cash even with your bet and fixed expectations on your call bet. These odds are:

  • Equal for a pair or high card
  • 2-1 for 2 pairs
  • 3-1 for 3 of a kind
  • four to one for a straight
  • 5-1 for a flush
  • 7-1 for a full house
  • 20-1 for a four of a kind
  • 50-1 for a straight flush
  • one hundred to one for a royal flush
