Omaha Poker


This is how the game of Omaha poker works.

This poker game is almost the same as Texas Hold'em. It has the same structure. This poker game is a variance of Texas Hold'em.

The distinction is as follows:

Four face down (hole) cards are dealt to each player.

A player must use two of the cards (out of four) in her hand and three of the board cards to make a five card hand at showdown.

Unless you are playing a split high-low version of this poker game, then it is a little different.

A player is not allowed to play the board.

Omaha High-Low Split:

Omaha High-Low Split is much the same as the standard Omaha. The difference is that each player can use all four of her hole cards to form a hand.

In this poker game, a player can use any two cards in her hands and any three cards of the board to make her best five card high hand or any two cards in her hand and any three cards of the board to make her best five card low hand.

A player is not allowed to play the board.

Note:
It is common for players with low hands to tie frequently in this form of poker. Also, players with high hands sometimes tie as well. So, it is pretty normal for a player to win only one fourth of the entire pot, and this is referred to as "Getting Quartered."
