[ English ]

Online poker has become world famous lately, with televised events and celebrity poker game shows. The games universal appeal, though, stretches back in reality a bit further than its television ratings. Over the years numerous variations on the earliest poker game have been created, including some games that are not in reality poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of these games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is most closely resembling blackjack than traditional poker, in that the players wager against the bank rather than each other. The winning hands, are the established poker hands. There is no concealment or different kinds of deceptiveness. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to ante up prior to the croupier saying "No more bets." At that instance, both you and the house and of course all of the different players acquire 5 cards. Once you have looked at your hand and the dealer’s first card, you must in turn make a call wager or give up. The call bet’s value is equal to your beginning ante, which means that the stakes will have doubled. Bowing out means that your wager goes directly to the bank. After the wager comes the conclusion. If the house does not have ace/king or greater, your bet is given back, plus a figure on par with the initial bet. If the house has a hand with ace/king or greater, you succeed if your hand is greater than the bank’s hand. The bank pays money equal to your ante and set expectations on your call wager. These expectations are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • two to one for two pairs
  • 3-1 for 3 of a kind
  • 4-1 for a straight
  • 5-1 for a flush
  • 7-1 for a full house
