Internet poker has become world acclaimed lately, with televised tournaments and celebrity poker game shows. Its popularity, though, arcs back quite a bit further than its television ratings. Over the years numerous variants on the original poker game have been created, including some games that are not in reality poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is 1 of these games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely related to vingt-et-un than long-standing poker, in that the players wager against the casino instead of each other. The winning hands, are the long-standing poker hands. There is little conniving or other kinds of deceptiveness. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to pay up prior to the croupier saying "No more bets." At that point, both you and the casino and of course every one of the different players are given five cards each. Once you have seen your hand and the casino’s 1st card, you have to in turn make a call wager or accede. The call wager’s value is akin to your beginning wager, which means that the stakes will have increased two fold. Bowing out means that your bet goes immediately to the dealer. After the wager is the face off. If the house doesn’t have ace/king or better, your bet is returned, plus a sum in accordance with the ante. If the house has a hand with ace/king or greater, you succeed if your hand beats the bank’s hand. The house pays money even with your original bet and fixed expectations on your call wager. These expectations are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • 2-1 for two pairs
  • three to one for 3 of a kind
  • four to one for a straight
  • five to one for a flush
  • seven to one for a full house
  • twenty to one for a four of a kind
  • 50-1 for a straight flush
  • one hundred to one for a royal flush
