Caribbean Stud Poker Tip Sheet – Part Two

In part one of the Caribbean Stud Poker Tip Sheet, I went over the all-important odds chart and gave you some insight into what to expect when you’re playing Caribbean Stud Poker. Next, let’s go over four fast tips to help you maximize your fun and potential profit when playing Caribbean Stud Poker.

Caribbean Stud Poker Tip One – Staying In

This one is pretty easy. If you are dealt two pairs or better, add to your wager and stay in the hand. The premise is simple. The dealer will only have a hand better than two pair once per 47 hands in theory. The probability of you winning is on your side.

I’d also expand this and say that with one pair you should strongly consider staying in the hand. The probability of getting two pair is 1:21 and if you win you’re being paid 1:1, so the value is in your favor. The dealer will fail to qualify very often and that’s what you want when you have one pair.

Caribbean Stud Poker Tip Two – Play that progressive

Some call it a sucker’s bet, but let’s be honest. Why are you playing this game? To have fun and win money!

If you get a straight, flush, full house, straight flush or royal flush and the dealer doesn’t quality-again, it happens a lot-you get paid nothing. I don’t know about you, but if I’m dealt a four of a kind and the dealer doesn’t qualify, I’ll look pretty stupid for not betting that $1.

And if you’re a money management and fiscal conservative, go play Craps or nothing at all.

Caribbean Stud Poker Tip Three – Nothing equals fold

Again, a super simple tip to live by. If you have nothing in your hand, fold. Why? Well, think about it. The only way you win is if the dealer doesn’t qualify and that might happen say 30% of the time. If that were the case, you’d have a 70% chance to lose and you’ll only be paid even money on your Ante wager. Your Bet wager gets nothing, but it can lose if you stay in.

Think about it again if you think I’m wrong. You’re wagering two times the amount to win half. For instance, you’re wagering $10 with nothing to win a maximum of $5 and you have a high probability of losing on top of all that. It’s a really stupid move.

Caribbean Stud Poker Tip Four – Play it cool

Caribbean Stud Poker is a great game, but it’s not the best game in the house. Have a blast, but never press up your bets thinking that you’re “due” to win.

Take it easy, have fun, remember these tips and win some money.
