Poker has become world famous lately, with televised events and celebrity poker game events. Its universal appeal, though, stretches back in reality a bit further than its TV ratings. Over the years many variants on the original poker game have been developed, including a handful of games that are not quite poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of these games. Regardless of the name, Caribbean stud poker is most closely affiliated with vingt-et-un than old guard poker, in that the players wager against the casino instead of the other players. The winning hands, are the traditional poker hands. There is no conniving or other kinds of bamboozlement. In Caribbean stud poker, you are required to pay up before the croupier broadcasting "No further bets." At that instance, both you and the bank and of course all of the other players are given five cards. After you have observed your hand and the casino’s initial card, you must either make a call wager or give up. The call wager’s value is equal to your beginning ante, meaning that the risks will have doubled. Giving Up means that your wager goes instantaneously to the dealer. After the wager comes the showdown. If the bank does not have ace/king or better, your wager is returned, including a sum equal to the ante. If the bank has a hand with ace/king or greater, you succeed if your hand is greater than the dealer’s hand. The bank pays chips even with your ante and fixed expectations on your call bet. These odds are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • two to one for 2 pairs
  • three to one for three of a kind
  • 4-1 for a straight
  • five to one for a flush
  • 7-1 for a full house
  • twenty to one for a 4 of a kind
  • 50-1 for a straight flush
  • one hundred to one for a royal flush
