How To Play Omaha Poker

Ohama poker plays the second best in attracting a large amount of people in card games next to Texas Holdem. Ohama Poker is very similar to Texas Holdem
with the main difference being that a player can choose his or her hand out of nine cards instead of seven. This is the reason for the growing popularity of the game.
Omaha
which has the same structure as Texas Holdem
is played very similar to Texas Hold’em; the only difference being that each player is dealt four hole cards instead of two. The players post the blinds and then receive their hole cards. After receiving the hole cards
a betting round takes place and then comes the flop
the turn and the river with a betting round between each of them.
The main difference between Omaha and Texas Hold’em is that each of the players has to form his hand out of precisely two hole cards and three board cards. This is different from Texas Hold’em where a player could use either one or both (or even none) of his hole cards. If a player is trying to win the low hand
he must use two unpaired hole cards that are ranked lower than eight
and three board cards
also unpaired
that are also ranked lower than eight.
In Omaha
the starting hands should be coordinated
which means that they should fit together. What you really want are cards that are more likely to form into straights
flushes or a full house. It’s very rare that a pair would hold up on an Omaha table. Look for double-suited hands
giving you two chances of a flush and cards that are close together or considered in a run.
In playing the game
this is an example where many new Omaha players falter. The players
for instance
see four spades on the board
which are the community cards
and they have the Ace of Spades in their hand. They think they have the nut flush
forgetting that a player must use two hole cards
therefore needing two spades in his hand to make a flush.
Omaha is played either Pot Limit or Limit. The game is not played No Limit
as having four hole cards gives so many extra possibilities
chances
and permutations. If playing No Limit
the game would be too wild and without direction.
