Internet poker has become world acclaimed lately, with televised competitions and celebrity poker game events. Its popularity, though, stretches back quite a bit further than its TV scores. Over the years numerous variants on the original poker game have been developed, including some 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 affiliated with chemin de fer than old guard poker, in that the players wager against the casino rather than the other players. The succeeding hands, are the established poker hands. There is little bluffing or other kinds of boondoggle. In Caribbean stud poker, you are required to pay up before the dealer saying "No more bets." At that point, both you and the dealer and of course all of the different gamblers acquire 5 cards. After you have looked at your hand and the dealer’s initial card, you need to either make a call bet or accede. The call wager’s value is equal to your beginning bet, meaning that the stakes will have doubled. Bowing out means that your wager goes immediately to the house. After the bet comes the face off. If the dealer does not have ace/king or greater, your bet is returned, including an amount in accordance with the ante. If the house does have ace/king or better, you win if your hand is greater than the casino’s hand. The casino pays out money equal to your original bet and fixed expectations on your call wager. These odds 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
  • seven to one for a full house
  • 20-1 for a 4 of a kind
  • fifty to one for a straight flush
  • 100-1 for a royal flush
