Caribbean Poker Protocols and Tips

Internet poker has become world celebrated lately, with televised events and celebrity poker game events. Its popularity, though, stretches back in fact a bit farther than its TV scores. Over the years several variants on the first poker game have been created, including a handful of games that are not really poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is 1 of these games. Regardless of the name, Caribbean stud poker is most closely related to vingt-et-un than old guard poker, in that the players wager against the bank rather than the other players. The winning hands, are the traditional poker hands. There is little concealment or different kinds of deceptiveness. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to pay up before the croupier announcing "No further bets." At that instance, both you and the dealer and of course all of the other gamblers attain five cards each. After you have looked at your hand and the bank’s 1st card, you must either make a call bet or bow out. The call bet’s value is akin to your beginning wager, which means that the stakes will have doubled. Bowing out means that your ante goes instantly to the house. After the wager comes the showdown. If the dealer does not have ace/king or better, your bet is returned, with a sum on par with the original bet. If the bank has a hand with ace/king or greater, you succeed if your hand beats the bank’s hand. The casino pays out money even with your ante and set expectations on your call bet. These odds are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • 2-1 for two pairs
  • three to one for three of a kind
  • four to one for a straight
  • 5-1 for a flush
  • 7-1 for a full house
  • twenty to one for a four of a kind
  • 50-1 for a straight flush
  • one hundred to one for a royal flush
