Caribbean stud is played against the house rather than against other players. There is no bluffing or other deception.
Player makes an ante wager plus an optional $1 progressive side bet
Each player and the dealer get five cards each. All cards are dealt face down, except one dealer card is exposed. The player may examine his own cards but sharing of information is not allowed.
Player must fold or raise.
If player folds he forfeits his cards, ante bet, and side bet (if made)
If player raises then he must make a raise wager exactly equal to twice the ante
The dealer will turn over his other four cards
The dealer must have an ace and a king or higher to qualify. In other words, the lowest qualifying hand would be ace, king, 4, 3, 2 and the highest non-qualifying hand would be ace, queen, jack, 10, 9. If the dealer does not qualify the player will win even money on his ante wager and the raise will push.
If the dealer qualifies and beats the player, both ante and raise will lose.
If the dealer qualifies and loses to the player, then the ante will pay even money and the raise according to the posted pay table. The U.S. pay table is shown below.
If the player and dealer tie, both ante and raise will push.
The progressive side bet will be entirely based on the poker value of the player’s hand. Various pay tables are available.
