Before you ever start to play any type of gambling game you need to know how to play that game and if there are any strategies that will help you win. In Caribbean Stud Poker you play against the house rather than other players. This means you can't bluff on the hand. We are going to look at a few tips to help you play this game.
First you cannot bluff your way into a win. Your hand will be exposed in the final round of Caribbean stud poker for the dealer to see. This is all about the best hand winning. If you don't have any hand at all then you shouldn't try to raise. In fact the only time you should raise to stay in the game is when you have a decent hand. We will look at what that means.
- Royal Flush is 100 to 1 on the payout and it is the best hand you can possibly get. If you have this hand you should never fold.
- One pair is the lowest hand with a pay out of even money. You should be careful when raising with this type of hand. It depends on the pair. Obviously you have a hand that will win if the dealer doesn't have anything, but what if the dealer also has a pair? The pair the dealer could have may be higher than yours. In other words if you have a pair of twos with the highest card in your hand as an ace you might stay in. However if you have a pair of twos with a five as your highest card, the dealer could beat you.
- In this game you are playing the odds certainly. The dealer up card will help you determine if you want to stay in the game or fold when you have a pair. It has been my experience that if you have a lower pair and are conservative you shouldn't bet. If you love risk and don't mind losing double the ante then go for it. You have a chance to win.
- So you can take the strategy of always playing when you have a possible winning hand, or sticking to the main streets while driving the speed limit for the loss of the ante wager. You might just be disappointed if you could have won that round.
- In Caribbean poker the house has an edge of 5.2 percent. That is pretty high. There is no way without cheating that you would lower this edge.
- If you play this game in a land casino cheating will get you kicked out of the casinos if you are caught. It is not a wise option to try for.
