How to Play Stud Poker Table

The game begins when the player places an ANTE on the table (which works as a 1:1 bet). Once the ante has been placed, the cards are dealt: all the cards are facing down, except for one. There are no card replacements.

Once the cards are dealt, the player must decide between raising and folding the hand. If the player surrenders or Folds back, the dealer keeps the ante and reveals his cards. But if the player decides to continue playing, the bet raises automatically. The value of the bet is fixed (based on the ante) and no modifications are allowed during the hand.

The dealer must have an ace and a king or higher in order to be able to open or 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 is unable to open the hand, then the player wins even money on his ante wager (the raise will push). But if the dealer decides to continue, then he/she must turn his cards up to compare both hands. If the dealer wins, he keeps both the bet and the ante. If the player has a better hand, he/she wins the ante straight plus the bet multiplied, in accordance to his/her hand.

Players are also allowed to Drop a Credit when placing the Ante. This side bet can be done by placing one credit in the slot above the betting circle. The winning customer gains an advantage on payouts and an additional bonus for all hands ranking as a flush or higher.

Stud Poker is a great game to play and win, but as any casino game, it is good to do some research before enjoying its pleasures, here is some basic strategy for playing Caribbean Std Poker at any casino, online version or brick and mortar.
