Online poker has become world famous recently, with televised tournaments and celebrity poker game shows. Its popularity, though, arcs back in fact a bit farther than its TV scores. Over the years many variants on the original poker game have been created, including a few games that are not really poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is 1 of these games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely affiliated with chemin de fer than old guard poker, in that the gamblers bet against the dealer rather than each other. The winning hands, are the traditional poker hands. There is no concealment or other kinds of boondoggle. In Caribbean stud poker, you are required to pay up prior to the croupier broadcasting "No more wagers." At that moment, both you and the dealer and of course all of the other players receive 5 cards each. Once you have observed your hand and the dealer’s first card, you need to either make a call bet or give up. The call wager’s amount is akin to your original bet, meaning that the stakes will have increased two fold. Bowing out means that your wager goes instantly to the dealer. After the wager is the face off. If the casino doesn’t have ace/king or better, your bet is returned, with an amount on par with the ante. If the house has a hand with ace/king or better, you succeed if your hand beats the bank’s hand. The house pony’s up money equal to your wager and fixed expectations on your call wager. These odds are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • two to one for two pairs
  • 3-1 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
