Omaha

Omaha is very similar to Texas Hold’em with one game changing factor. Instead of two hole cards, each player is dealt four hole cards. In Omaha, players must make the best possible hand with a combination of two from their hole cards and three from the community cards.

Pot Limit

In Pot Limit Omaha (most popular form of Omaha Poker), the maximum a player can bet is the amount that is in the pot. For example, a $100 bet into a $100 pot.

Positions

The following are positions that you should know before playing the game.

  • Big blind
    The player on the left of the small blind. The big blind is the same as the minimum bet size.
  • Small blind
    The player immediately left of the dealer has to post the small blind.
  • Dealer
    Each hand has one designated dealer. The dealer position determines the small and big blind positions. The dealer button is passed clockwise after every hand.

Actions

  • Check
    Check to complete your turn without betting. Remember that checking may be considered as a tell for possessing weak hands.
  • Bet
    If you have a good hand, you may want to bet to win a bigger pot.
  • Raise
    Tell your opponents that you’re not messing around.
  • Call
    Call to look up your opponent’s hands. Not all bets equate to strong hands.
  • All-in
    Apply maximum pressure on your opponents.
  • Fold
    To throw away your cards and forfeit whatever you have put in the pot

Pre-Flop

The Pre-Flop – Everybody gets four cards (Hole Cards)

This is the round of betting made when you receive your four hole cards and before any community cards are seen.

The Flop

The Flop – 3 Community (Everyone’s) cards are dealt

Once the first three community cards are dealt there’s a second round of betting. You combine two of your hole cards and these community cards to make the best hand possible.

The Turn

The Turn – A 4th community card is dealt

A fourth card is dealt called “the turn” followed by another round of betting. The additional card can completely alter player’s actions as their hands get stronger or weaker.

The River

The River – A final 5th community card is dealt

A final fifth card is dealt and another round of betting commences. You now need to see what your strongest hand is, and figure out if your competition has a stronger hand, missed a card they were chasing or are bluffing to win the pot.

The Showdown


If two or more players are left after the action ends on the river, you enter The Showdown. All active players show their hole cards, the best hand is determined and the pot awarded to the winner. If two or more players show equally ranked winning hands at showdown, the pot is split evenly.
