Introduction to Caribbean Stud Poker

Caribbean Stud is very easy to play because every player is deal 5 cards and no need to hit more card. The game is played with normal deck, without the joker and wild card. It’s best to play with the house, not each other.

To start, every player will have to put an ante. Every player will receive 5 cards, so as the dealer. As an enticement, the dealer will open 1 in his 5 cards. After knowing the dealer open card, player can either choose to quit and lose his ante or continue to play and put his bet (equal the ante).

Right after all players make their decision, players will open their cards. The rankings from standard poker will be applied, and if one’s hand is greater than the dealer the he will win with the winning rate 1-1. The ante is returned only if the player’s hand is greater than the dealer and the dealer is eligible (his hand must include Ace, King or greater). If the player and dealer have the same hand, both ante and bet will be canceled and nothing changes about money.
