Caribbean Stud Poker

Caribbean stud is one of the poker games where you don't compete against other players and also don't play for the pot. If you like doing things on your own, then this is the game for you.
This game is different because here everyone plays against the casino or room which acts as a bank (dealer), paying out all winning bets. To win you have to beat the dealer's hand, and other player's hands don't make a difference.

Each player makes an ante (initial blind bet) and is dealt 5 cards face down. The dealer receives 4 cards face down and 1 card face up. Now each player decides whether to fold or play by looking at their cards. If they fold, then their ante is lost but if they continue, they have to double their ante-bet.

The dealer then reveals his hand, but he must have an A-k or higher in order to play his hand, if not the player is paid even money on the ante and also the additional bet is not lost (See the table for odds). If the player's hand beats the dealer's, the ante is paid at evens. However, if the dealer's hand beats the player's hand then both bets are lost.

Additional Bet Payout odds:

Hand Payoff
Royal Flush 100/1
Straight Flush 50/1
4 of a Kind 20/1
Full House 7/1
Flush 5/1
Straight 4/1
3 of a Kind 3/1
Two Pair 2/1
One pair or High card 1/1 (Even)

If the dealer and player play the same poker hand, then remaining cards are taken in to consideration. If all five cards are equal, the hand is void. Neither the ante nor the additional bet is lost.
The ranking of suits makes no difference to the hand.

For this game, the odds are poor. A normal game of poker with seven players will have odds of at least 6/1 which is much better when compared to the minimum odds in this game which is 1/1. Also the odds paid for the additional bet is poor. Again there is no skill required and you rely too much on luck. Finally remember you have much better odds of winning money when you are playing for the pot.
