Caribbean Poker Codes and Tips

Internet poker has become globally acclaimed lately, with televised tournaments and celebrity poker game shows. Its popularity, though, stretches back quite a bit further than its television ratings. Over the years several variants on the original poker game have been developed, including a few games that are not quite poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of these games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is most closely related to blackjack than traditional poker, in that the players wager against the bank rather than the other players. The succeeding hands, are the traditional poker hands. There is no conniving or different types of deceptiveness. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to pay up just before the croupier declares "No more wagers." At that instance, both you and the house and of course all of the other gamblers receive 5 cards. Once you have seen your hand and the casino’s 1st card, you need to in turn make a call bet or bow out. The call wager’s value is akin to your beginning wager, indicating that the stakes will have doubled. Surrendering means that your wager goes instantly to the casino. After the bet comes the conclusion. If the dealer does not have ace/king or better, your bet is given back, with an amount on par with the ante. If the house has a hand with ace/king or greater, you win if your hand beats the bank’s hand. The bank pony’s up chips equal to your initial bet and set expectations on your call wager. These odds are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • two to one for 2 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
  • 100-1 for a royal flush
