Caribbean Poker Codes and Hints

Internet poker has become world famous as of late, with televised championships and celebrity poker game shows. Its universal appeal, though, stretches back quite a bit further than its TV ratings. Over the years several variants on the original poker game have been developed, including a handful of games that are not really poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of these particular games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely resembling vingt-et-un than old guard poker, in that the gamblers bet against the house rather than each other. The succeeding hands, are the traditional poker hands. There is little conniving or different kinds of concealment. In Caribbean stud poker, you are required to pay up before the dealer saying "No more bets." At that moment, both you and the casino and of course every one of the other gamblers attain five 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 wager’s amount is akin to your beginning wager, which means that the stakes will have increased two fold. Abandoning means that your ante goes directly to the bank. After the bet comes the conclusion. If the casino does not have ace/king or better, your wager is given back, with a sum equal to the ante. If the house does have ace/king or better, you win if your hand is greater than the dealer’s hand. The house pays out chips even with your bet and controlled odds on your call wager. These expectations are:

  • Equal for a pair or high card
  • 2-1 for two pairs
  • 3-1 for 3 of a kind
  • 4-1 for a straight
  • five to one for a flush
  • seven to one 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
