How to Play Caribbean Stud Poker?

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010

Caribbean Stud Poker is one of the newest variations of poker available in casinos across the world. Here each player is pitted against the dealer in a heads-up hand of five cards. Unlike the other stud games, the players get all the five cards at once and they are all faced own. Therefore you can only see the cards that you have. The dealer would show one card and keep the other cards closed till the end. Anyone with the best five card hand would win the game. You are required to beat the dealer’s hand and not the other players.

For all those who are tired of the regular version of Texas Hold’em, they can now try the ‘Crazy Pineapple’ version of poker. It is similar to Hold’em and therefore you need to know the rules of the game. The game starts off differently but ends up similarly. In Pineapple Poker, the players are dealt three hole cards in the beginning, as opposed to two in Texas Hold’em. There is a round of betting after that and then the flop is dealt. There is another round of betting after that. The crazy part of the game is that the remaining players in hand are required to discard one of three hole cards.
