Caribbean Hold’em Poker ™ Explained:
The goal of Caribbean Hold'em is to get a better five-card poker hand than the dealer. Three community cards (called the "Flop") are dealt face up. The dealer is dealt two cards face down and you are dealt two cards face up. You predict whether or not your five-card poker hand will beat the dealer's hand. Hands are ranked according to standard poker rules.
If you believe your five-card poker hand will be as good or better than the dealers, you Call to make an additional bet that is twice the ante. If you believe the dealer will have a better five-card hand, you Fold to forfeit the ante and end the game.
Two more community cards are dealt face up. There are now five community cards that both you and the dealer can use to make the best five-card poker hand possible. You can use some or all of the five community cards to make the best five-card poker hand.
The dealer's hand must qualify with a pair of 4's or better. If the dealer does not qualify and you call, you win the ante and your Call bet is returned.
If the dealer qualifies, you call, and your five-card poker hand is better than the dealer's hand, you win on the ante according to the payouts below and you win even money on your Call bet.
If the dealer qualifies, you call, and your poker hand is equal to the dealer's poker hand, you push.
