Many Irish casino players enjoy gambling on poker but there are also many who are put off by the fact that another player who has a bigger budget or is willing to gamble more comes along and steals pots with a lesser hand but for those folk there is a solution called gambling on Caribbean Stud. Caribbean stud gambling is still poker meaning that the idea is to form a five card poker hand but instead of playing against other players for an indeterminate pot you are only playing against the dealer and you know exactly how much you are playing for; there is no bluffing in Caribbean Stud gambling. There are some minor variations available and Ladbrokes casino has even gone to the trouble of calling it Cyberstud poker but the basics are the same. To start the game the player must place an ante which can be varied hand by hand within the table limits after which you will be dealt your 5 cards and the dealer will either be dealt one face up card or all 5 cards with one face up; it makes no difference to the game which way round it is. Having seen your cards you must decide whether to play or not which is basically whether you think you have a better poker hand than the dealer. When gambling on Caribbean Stud you have only one chance to play or fold, if you want to fold you lose your ante bet but if you want to play you must place another bet equivalent to twice your original ante bet whereupon all cards are revealed and the hands compared. There is one more twist in Caribbean stud gambling and that is that the dealer must have an Ace/King or better for the raise bet to count and if that is not the case then the raise bet is returned and the ante bet paid at even money. Caribbean stud gambling is poker but you cannot lose more than three times your ante in any one hand.
