Web poker has become world famous as of late, with televised tournaments and celebrity poker game shows. The games universal appeal, though, arcs back in reality a bit further than its television scores. Over the years many variations on the earliest poker game have been created, including some games that are not in reality poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of these games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely resembling vingt-et-un than long-standing poker, in that the gamblers bet against the bank instead of the other players. The succeeding hands, are the traditional poker hands. There is no conniving or different kinds of concealment. In Caribbean stud poker, you are required to pay up before the dealer saying "No further wagers." At that instance, both you and the dealer and of course every one of the different players are given 5 cards each. After you have seen your hand and the bank’s 1st card, you have to in turn make a call bet or give up. The call wager’s value is equal to your original ante, meaning that the stakes will have increased two fold. Bowing out means that your bet goes instantly to the bank. After the bet comes the showdown. If the dealer doesn’t have ace/king or better, your wager is given back, including an amount equal to the initial bet. If the bank does have ace/king or better, you succeed if your hand defeats the bank’s hand. The dealer pays chips equal to your ante and set expectations on your call bet. These expectations are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • two to one for two pairs
  • three to one for 3 of a kind
  • 4-1 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
  • one hundred to one for a royal flush
