Caribbean Stud

Of all the different variations of online poker, Caribbean Stud has the highest house edge (5.22%), assuming �perfect play’.  For this reason, it is vitally important to choose a strategy, which gets you as close as possible to that.

The best strategy for achieving this is pretty complicated and not something you can memorize easily.  However, it is possible to use a simpler set of rules that are just as effective and still produces a result that’s not far off �perfect play’.

The most basic strategy that you can apply to most hands are:

  • Always fold your hand if can’t even match the dealer’s minimum qualifying hand (A, K)
  • Always raise if you hold a single Pair or better

The complicated �best’ Caribbean Stud strategy is required if you are holding an Ace and King, due to the number of different variations. However, it is possible to use a simpler set of rules that are just as effective and still produces a result that’s not far off �perfect play. These are listed below:

You hold an Ace and King, Raise if:

  • the dealer’s face-up card is one of the â€?qualifying’ cards i.e. an Ace or a King, and one of your other three cards is a Queen or Jack
  • the dealer’s face-up card is any card from a 2 to a Queen and it matches the rank of one of your other three cards
  • the rank of the dealer’s face-up card does not feature in your hand, but your other three cards include a Queen and one other card that outranks it

If you follow this strategy and and not sway from it you will be playing with just about the best odds possible for Caribbean Stud.
