Caribbean Poker Rules and Hints

Internet poker has become globally famous recently, with televised events and celebrity poker game shows. Its universal appeal, though, stretches back quite a bit further than its television scores. Over the years numerous variants on the first poker game have been created, including a handful of games that are not in fact poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is 1 of these particular games.

  • Equal for a pair or high card
  • 2-1 for 2 pairs
