Internet poker has become world acclaimed lately, with televised championships and celebrity poker game events. 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 developed, including a few games that are not in reality poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of these particular games. Regardless of the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely resembling chemin de fer than long-standing poker, in that the gamblers bet against the bank rather than the other players. The winning hands, are the established poker hands. There is no conniving or other types of deceptiveness. In Caribbean stud poker, you are required to pay up just before the croupier announcing "No more bets." At that instance, both you and the casino and of course all of the different players attain 5 cards each. Once you have looked at your hand and the casino’s initial card, you need to in turn make a call wager or surrender. The call bet’s value is akin to your beginning wager, meaning that the risks will have doubled. Surrendering means that your ante goes instantaneously to the dealer. After the wager is the showdown. If the casino doesn’t have ace/king or better, your bet is returned, with an amount in accordance with the ante. If the house does have ace/king or greater, you win if your hand is greater than the casino’s hand. The house pays money even with your bet and set odds on your call bet. These odds are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • 2-1 for 2 pairs
  • 3-1 for three 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
