5-Card Stud Poker
Rumour has it that in the history books 5-Card Stud Poker came around when 5-Card Draw was said to have too much cheating going on. 5-Card Draw means you cannot see your opponent’s cards, and generally players would hold these cards in their hands making it easier for tricksters to slip in and out a card or two of their own.

To stop the cheating the five cards were turned face-up with the exception of the first card dealt to each player. To start the betting two cards are dealt with the first of those two cards face-down and the second face-up. There are then three more streets or cards to come all of which are dealt one-by-one face-up with a round of betting in between each street. This stopped the cheating in the game because the cards could remain on the table. Plus there were no draw phases to swap cards in and out of the hand.

The game quickly became a legendary way of playing poker. In fact it was the most popular game of poker around before Texas Hold’em, 7-Card Stud, Razz and Omaha had all taken to the poker scene.

Caribbean Stud Poker

Caribbean Stud Poker is a casino table game. There are no streets, but five cards are dealt onto the table.

All five player cards are face-up while the dealer is dealt four cards face-down and one card face-up. The player has to guess if the dealer has a hand or not using that line face-up card as a guide. In 5-Card Stud the players are left guessing what the lone face-down card is in their opponent’s hands is. This is only point at which Caribbean Stud Poker bares a resemblance to Stud Poker.



The rules for the dealer in Caribbean Stud Poker are usually that the house can only qualify for the hand if the hand is Ace/King or higher. If not, the player receives an even odds return on his/her ante, but their bet to continue into a show down against the dealer is pushed back regardless of the hand the player is holding.

It is a game of tough odds, but exciting odds, and the dealer doesn’t play versus the player as players would play versus each other in Stud Poker.
