Caribbean Stud poker is a poker game that involves a few more steps than a typical game against the house. While the concept is not hard to master, it does require the player to do some thinking and guess work. Knowing the power of poker hands and what your odds of winning increase your ability to be successful.
Knowing How to Play Caribbean Stud Poker
Learning how to play Caribbean Stud poker does not mean that you will win. As much skill and know-how as you have, luck is still a big factor. The cards speak for themselves.
You start by anteing and placing a dollar on the bonus button. You are then dealt five cards face down and the dealer gets five cards with one face up. If you think that you can beat the dealers hand, you put a bet out that is equal to your ante. If not, you fold and lose your ante as well as your bonus dollar (the bonus dollar only comes into play if you hit a top 4 hand).
When you think you can win, the dealer will then flip his cards over. If he does not have an Ace King or better, you win your ante at one to one and the bet is a push. If the dealer has better than an Ace King and you beat him, you then win your ante and bet at one to one. If you lose the hand, you lose everything.
