Caribbean Stud Poker Rules
Caribbean Stud Poker is a five-card stud poker game with odds paid for higher winning hands. A player begins by placing a bet (ante) in the ante box. Player is dealt five cards face down while the the dealer is dealt four cards face down and one card face up. Player then evaluate their hands and decide on one of two options.
1. Fold - a player will lose the amount wagered on the ante OR
2. Play - a player will place an additional wager in the bet area which must be double the amount of the "ante" wager.
The dealer then reveals his/her hand and compares them with player's hand if it is still in play. The dealer must qualify, however, with an Ace/King hand or better. If the dealer fails to qualify, the player receives even money on ther amount wagered on the ante while the back bet is a standoff. If the dealer qualifies with an Ace/King or higher and his/her hand is higher than the player's hand, the player loses both wagers on the ante and the bet. If the player's hand is higher than the dealer's hand, the player receives even money on the ante wager and a bonus amount wagered in the bet are based on the chart below.
