Caribbean Poker Codes and Hints

Poker has become world famous lately, with televised tournaments and celebrity poker game events. Its popularity, though, arcs back in reality a bit further than its television ratings. Over the years several types on the earliest poker game have been developed, including some games that are not quite poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of these games. Regardless of the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely affiliated with blackjack than old guard poker, in that the players wager against the casino instead of each other. The winning hands, are the traditional poker hands. There is little conniving or other kinds of concealment. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to ante up just before the dealer announcing "No more wagers." At that moment, both you and the house and of course all of the other players receive 5 cards. Once you have looked at your hand and the dealer’s first card, you have to either make a call bet or bow out. The call wager’s value is equal to your original bet, which means that the risks will have doubled. Abandoning means that your ante goes immediately to the casino. After the bet comes the face off. If the dealer does not have ace/king or greater, your bet is given back, plus an amount in accordance with the initial wager. If the casino does have ace/king or better, you succeed if your hand defeats the bank’s hand. The house pony’s up money even with your bet and controlled expectations on your call wager. These expectations are:

  • Equal 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
  • 20-1 for a four of a kind
  • 50-1 for a straight flush
  • 100-1 for a royal flush
