Poker has become globally acclaimed recently, with televised competitions and celebrity poker game shows. The games popularity, though, stretches back quite a bit further than its TV ratings. Over the years several variants on the earliest poker game have been created, including some games that are not quite poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is 1 of these particular games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely resembling blackjack than long-standing poker, in that the gamblers wager against the casino rather than the other players. The succeeding hands, are the traditional poker hands. There is no bluffing or different types of deceptiveness. In Caribbean stud poker, you are required to pay up prior to the dealer announcing "No further bets." At that point, both you and the bank and of course all of the other players acquire 5 cards each. Once you have observed your hand and the casino’s 1st card, you must in turn make a call wager or accede. The call bet’s value is akin to your beginning bet, which means that the stakes will have increased two fold. Abandoning means that your bet goes instantaneously to the bank. After the bet is the face off. If the casino doesn’t have ace/king or better, your bet is returned, including a sum in accordance with the ante. If the bank has a hand with ace/king or better, you win if your hand defeats the dealer’s hand. The bank pays out cash even with your wager and fixed odds on your call wager. These odds 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
  • five to one for a flush
  • 7-1 for a full house
  • 20-1 for a four of a kind
  • fifty to one for a straight flush
  • one hundred to one for a royal flush
