In stud poker each player receives a set of face-down and face-up cards dealt in many betting rounds. Stud games are also normally non-positional games, implying that the player who bets first on each round may vary from round to round. The cards dealt face down to each player are called hole cards.

Games with four or fewer betting rounds, such as five card stud and Mississippi stud, do well with any configuration, and are especially suitable for no limit and pot limit play. Games with larger number of betting rounds are more appropriate to fixed limit or spread limit.

To play poker stud Caribbean game, every player puts his bet on the layout where indicated; all bets must be placed prior to the dealer declaring "No more bets". Afterwards, each player and the dealer will receive 5 cards, all face down. The dealer will turn over one of his cards, then push the cards toward the players, after which the players can look at their cards. They can only look at their own cards, and can not confide what they have to any other player at the table.
Players have the choice to play or fold; if they opt to play, they put their bets in the bet box. If they opt to fold, they forfeit their ante. After all the players have made their decisions, the dealer opens his hole cards. The dealer only plays with an ace/king or higher; he then compares his cards to the players' cards, and the holder of best combination wins. If the dealer does not possess at least one ace or king, all bet wagers will be void, and players will get even money on their ante bet only. If the dealer's cards beat a player's cards, the dealer receives both bet and the ante.
