Caribbean Poker Regulations and Tricks

Poker has become globally famous as of late, with televised events and celebrity poker game shows. The games popularity, though, stretches back in reality a bit further than its TV scores. Over the years several variations on the first poker game have been developed, including some games that are not in reality poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of these games. Regardless of the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely affiliated with chemin de fer than old guard poker, in that the gamblers bet against the bank instead of the other players. The winning hands, are the established poker hands. There is little bluffing or other types of bamboozlement. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to ante up before the dealer saying "No further wagers." At that point, both you and the casino and of course every one of the other players attain 5 cards each. Once you have looked at your hand and the bank’s first card, you need to in turn make a call wager or give up. The call bet’s amount is equal to your original bet, indicating that the risks will have increased two fold. Surrendering means that your ante goes immediately to the dealer. After the wager comes the conclusion. If the bank doesn’t have ace/king or better, your wager is returned, including an amount equal to the original wager. If the bank does have ace/king or greater, you win if your hand is greater than the casino’s hand. The house pays out chips equal to your ante and controlled odds on your call wager. These odds are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • 2-1 for two pairs
  • 3-1 for three of a kind
  • four to one for a straight
