Caribbean Poker Codes and Pointers

[ English ]

Internet poker has become world celebrated lately, with televised events and celebrity poker game shows. Its popularity, though, stretches back in fact a bit farther than its TV ratings. Over the years several variants on the first poker game have been developed, including a handful of games that are not quite poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of these games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely affiliated with vingt-et-un than long-standing poker, in that the gamblers bet against the dealer instead of the other players. The winning hands, are the long-standing poker hands. There is little concealment or other types of deceptiveness. In Caribbean stud poker, you are required to ante up before the dealer announcing "No further bets." At that moment, both you and the casino and of course every one of the other players receive 5 cards each. Once you have observed your hand and the casino’s first card, you must in turn make a call wager or give up. The call bet’s amount is akin to your beginning wager, which means that the stakes will have increased two fold. Bowing out means that your bet goes immediately to the bank. After the wager comes the conclusion. If the casino does not have ace/king or better, your bet is given back, including an amount in accordance with the ante. If the bank does have ace/king or better, you win if your hand is greater than the bank’s hand. The dealer pays money equal to your bet and set expectations on your call wager. These expectations are:

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