Online poker has become globally acclaimed as of late, with televised tournaments and celebrity poker game events. Its popularity, though, stretches back in reality a bit farther than its television scores. Over the years numerous types on the original poker game have been created, including some games that are not really poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of these games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is most closely resembling blackjack than old guard poker, in that the players wager against the bank instead of each other. The winning hands, are the long-standing poker hands. There is little concealment or different types of boondoggle. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to ante up just before the dealer broadcasting "No more wagers." At that point, both you and the casino and of course all of the different players receive five cards each. After you have looked at your hand and the dealer’s first card, you have to in turn make a call wager or bow out. The call bet’s value is akin to your beginning wager, indicating that the risks will have doubled. Surrendering means that your ante goes instantly to the dealer. After the bet is the conclusion. If the casino does not have ace/king or greater, your wager is given back, including an amount on par with the initial wager. If the casino does have ace/king or better, you win if your hand beats the casino’s hand. The bank pony’s up cash even with your ante and controlled expectations on your call bet. These expectations are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • two to one for 2 pairs
  • 3-1 for three of a kind
  • four to one for a straight
  • 5-1 for a flush
  • 7-1 for a full house
  • twenty to one for a four of a kind
  • fifty to one for a straight flush
