Caribbean Stud Poker
On of the most popular casino poker games worldwide is Caribbean Poker, or Caribbean Stud Poker. There are a couple major differences from a standard poker game, though.
First, players play against the house - not each other. Players also get all five cards at once rather than in sequence with a betting round after each.
Basic Game Play:
Each player begins put putting in his or her ante. The dealer puts out five cards for each player and the house itself.
One of the house's cards is dealt face up. Each player can now put in twice his or her original ante (a "call bet") or give up the hand.
Play then goes directly to showdown. The dealer has to have AK or better to have a qualifying hand. If he doesn't the player's ante and call bet are returned plus an ante. If the player's hand is equal to the dealer's it's a "push" and the ante and call bet are returned to the player.
