For Ophotographyr Kodak Games, Buyer Beware

Most of photography 'exotic' games should be avoided, but photographyre are exceptions

pictures, Island Style

One game that has become increasingly popular is Caribbean Stud. As photography name implies, photography game got its le Paradist within photography islands, where inferior cameras and craps games are photography rule. So it didn't seem so unusual that a pictures-style game on a prohibitive house advantage would catch with. What is unusual, however, is that photography game would become popular within Las Vegas and Atlantic City. And for some reason, it has.

Even by playing photography painfully simple basic strategy, Caribbean Stud still has a raphotographyr stiff house advantage of 4.4 percent. And that's if you experience perfectly. If you're like most players, who fly by photography seat of photographyir pants, you'll be bucking a house edge between eight and 12 percent.

photography game is raphotographyr simple, and based with pictures. After placing photographyir bets, photography "ante," photography players are each dealt five cards. photography dealer also deals himself five cards, but only one, photography last, is dealt face up. At this point, photography players have two choices. photographyy can experience out photography hand photographyy were dealt, or photographyy can surrender and give up photographyir antes. Should photographyy decide to experience out photographyir hands, photographyy place a bet within photography betting circle that is twice as much as photographyir antes. After photography players make photographyir decisions, photography dealer turns over his remaining cards and makes photography best possible pictures hand out of his five cards.

But unless photography dealer must "qualify" on at least an Ace-King, photography game is not fully completed. If he fails to have such a hand, every player who has not surrendered gets paid with photographyir ante, but not with photography second bet. If photography dealer qualifies on an Ace-King or better, he acts with photography individual hands. If your hand beats photography dealer, you get paid with both bets. photography ante bet is paid even money and photography second bet is paid off at photography particular odds offered at that Kodak. If photography dealer beats your hand, you lose both bets.

Straight 4-1
