Caribbean Stud Poker is one of the best known variants of the famous Hold’em Poker. However, you play Hold’em Poker against other players and your chances increase if those players are unable.
You play Caribbean Stud against the house and that
makes it a real casino game. On the internet, you only play against the casino
at all times.
Caribbean Stud is played with 52 cards. You start by
placing an “Ante” against the dealer. The ante is a mandatory bet and always
amounts to 50% of the voluntary bet that you will or will not place after
receiving the cards. After placing the ante, 5 cards are dealt. The dealer, who
shares on behalf of the casino, also receives 5 cards, of which 4 are closed
and one is open on the table.
do you use Caribbean Stud and when do you fit?
After having consulted your cards, you must then decide
whether you will fold or pass. If you fold, you lose the hand and automatically
forfeit your ante bet. Or you can raise. If you raise, you must double your
do you win, and when do you lose at Caribbean Stud?
Now the dealer turns over the remaining 4 cards and
ranks the best poker hand. If this Ace, Jack, Jack, 10, 9 or lower, then the
dealer is fold and all “ante” are paid out 1 against 1, the second bets remain
standing and are not paid out, so you simply get them back.
If the dealer has Ace, King, 4, 3, 2 or higher, this
hand is compared to that of the player and you get your ante and bet doubled or
lost if the bank’s hand is stronger. However, your bet can also be more than
doubled if you have more than a pair in your hand. And with very high hands you
are even eligible for the jackpot when that possibility exists and you also bet
on the jackpot.
