Web poker has become world famous lately, with televised competitions and celebrity poker game shows. Its universal appeal, though, arcs back in fact a bit further than its TV ratings. Over the years numerous variations on the first poker game have been developed, including a few games that are not in fact poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is 1 of the above-mentioned games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely affiliated with twenty-one than old guard poker, in that the gamblers bet against the dealer rather than the other players. The winning hands, are the traditional poker hands. There is little conniving or other types of boondoggle. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to ante up just before the dealer declares "No further bets." At that moment, both you and the bank and of course every one of the different gamblers are given five cards. Once you have looked at your hand and the bank’s initial card, you have to either make a call bet or give up. The call bet’s value is akin to your beginning wager, indicating that the stakes will have increased two fold. Bowing out means that your wager goes directly to the dealer. After the bet comes the conclusion. If the house doesn’t have ace/king or better, your wager is returned, plus a figure on par with the ante. If the casino has a hand with ace/king or greater, you succeed if your hand is greater than the bank’s hand. The house pony’s up chips equal to your ante and controlled odds on your call bet. These odds are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • two to one 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
  • 20-1 for a 4 of a kind
  • fifty to one for a straight flush
  • 100-1 for a royal flush
