Like to know how to play Caribbean Stud Poker?


Caribbean Stud Poker is a fun game to play, but not a great returning game, so don't expect to win too much playing it.  

The rules are...

  1. Game begins with the player (s) placing a wager, this is called the ante.

  2. The player is dealt 5 cards, all face up and the dealer receives 5 cards with only 1 face up. 

  3. The player can then fold, and forfeit the ante, or play, and add a bet equal to double the ante (the raise) .

  4. (assuming the player doesn't fold) The dealer's face down card is revealed.  

  5. The dealer must qualify for the game to continue.  To qualify the dealer must have at least an Ace and King or better (poker hand).  

  6. If the dealer doesn't qualify then the player automatically wins even money on the ante and the raise is pushed. 

  7. If the dealer qualifies then a comparison is made between the player's hand and the dealer's hand. If the player has the higher hand he/she wins 
    - even money on the ante, and 
    - the additional wager pays according to the payoff rates. 
    If the dealer's hand beats the player's hand he loses both the ante and raise.
