The Caribbean Stud Poker is a 5-card poker variant played with one deck of cards, in which each player receives a mix of face-down and face-up cards dealt in multiple betting rounds. It has a history full of mysteries, oddities, and fiction. However, it is not unusual to notice, for the game poker itself is also adorned with a bizarre and clouded history.

Stud poker started to become famous during the 80’s. If you have been to Las Vegas casinos within this decade, you can see more and more Caribbean Stud tables showing up. Some people think that this new twist on poker would not attract too much players and enthusiasts, but it wasn’t long before they realize that this feisty little game drew people in like how a sink swallows the water down the drain during those years.

And what is really the main attraction of the stud poker? Well, for your information, it is the game speed that made it famous and attracted most gamblers. Caribbean Stud Poker is one of the fastest variation of poker. It combines the fast paced turn around of blackjack with the dynamic card values of poker to create a truly exciting game.

Nowadays, stud poker finds its permanent place in most live and online casino sites.

Playing Caribbean Stud Poker

The ultimate goal of the stud poker is to beat the dealer’s hand (similar to Blackjack), unlike other poker games in which a player plays against the other players. In fact, most people often mistakes this game to be a blackjack game due to the fact that stud tables have 5 playing positions and a place for initial bets. This initial bet is called the ‘ante‘. You have to make an ante before receiving your cards.

The dealer will then deal 5 faced-up cards to each player all at once. He will also be dealt with 5 cards, but only one is faced up. After receiving your cards, as a stud poker player, you have to make a decision. If you think that your hand is good enough to beat the dealer’s, then you have to ‘call‘ and double your Ante (or raise) to maximize your winnings. However, if you think that you have a bad card, do not make an additional wager. You have to fold your cards and then you lose your initial Ante.

Before making a ‘deal‘ (the comparison of the dealer’s hand against the players’ to determine the winners) in the Caribbean stud poker, the dealer will first check whether his hand is qualified. In order to qualify, his hand must be Ace-King high or better. If he does not qualify, then the players’ ante will be paid 1 is to 1, and any raise made will be returned as a ‘push‘. However, you will still lose your ante if you fold, regardless of whether the dealer’s hand is qualified or not.

If the dealer’s hand qualifies, then his hand will be compared against the players. If the player’s hand is better than the dealers’, then the ante will be paid at 1:1 ratio, and the raise will be paid at a corresponding payout based on the value of his hand. However, if the dealer’s hand beats the player’s, then the ante and the raise will both be lost. Ranking the cards is similar to how you rank cards in poker games. In case that the hands are the same, the kicker(s) will determine the winner.

Caribbean Stud Poker Hands and Payouts

The Caribbean Stud Poker is played with a standard 52 card deck. Ace holds the highest individual rank, followed by King, Queen, Jack, 10, 9, 8, and so on until 2. However, unlike blackjack and baccarat, the cards does not contain specific values. The goal is just to create special card combination (technically, the poker hands) using the cards. As stated earlier, regular poker hand ranking hierarchy is applied in this poker variation. The payouts (together with the amount of jackpot in some online casinos) for each poker hand created are as follows, from the highest (Royal Flush) to the lowest qualified hand (Ace-King high):

* Royal Flush: 1,000 to 1 (100% of Jackpot)
* Straight Flush: 200 to 1 (10% of Jackpot)
* Four of a Kind: 100 to 1 ($500 Jackpot)
* Full House: 15 to 1 ($100 Jackpot)
* Flush: 10 to 1 ($50 Jackpot)
* Straight: 4 to 1
* Three of a Kind: 3 to 1
* Two Pairs: 1 to 1
* One Pair: 1 to 1
* Ace & King: 1 to 1
