• Caribbean Poker Protocols and Pointers

    Poker has become globally celebrated as of late, with televised tournaments and celebrity poker game events. Its universal appeal, though, stretches back in fact a bit further than its television ratings. Over the years numerous variants on the original poker game have been created, including a handful of games that are not quite poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of the above-mentioned games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is most closely related to 21 than old guard poker, in that the players wager against the dealer rather than the other players. The winning hands, are the long-standing poker hands. There is little concealment or other kinds of deception. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to ante up just before the dealer announcing "No further bets." At that moment, both you and the casino and of course all of the other players receive five cards each. Once you have seen your hand and the dealer’s first card, you have to in turn make a call wager or surrender. The call wager’s value is akin to your original wager, meaning that the stakes will have increased two fold. Surrendering means that your ante goes immediately to the bank. After the wager is the face off. If the dealer does not have ace/king or better, your wager is returned, including an amount in accordance with the ante. If the bank has a hand with ace/king or better, you succeed if your hand is greater than the dealer’s hand. The casino pays money equal to your wager and fixed expectations on your call wager. These expectations are:

    • Even for a pair or high card
    • two to one for 2 pairs
    • 3-1 for three of a kind
    • 4-1 for a straight
    • 5-1 for a flush
    • seven to one for a full house
    • twenty to one for a 4 of a kind
    • 50-1 for a straight flush
    • one hundred to one for a royal flush
