Omaha Poker

Omaha poker is similar to Texas Hold-em inasmuch that community cards are dealt for all players, except in Omaha Poker, 4 pocket cards are dealt. A popular variation of omaha poker is omaha hi-lo

The Game

The game requires players to 'buy in' chips when they sit at a table. The 'buy-in' is generally ten times the lowest bet limit. For example, on a 1/2 table, the 'buy-in' would be 10. However, in some games, the buy-in can be 20-times. As with Texas Hold'em, Omaha Poker requires players to post a small and large blind to begin a game.

Each player receives 4 cards from the dealer. Five cards, known as the 'community cards' are laid open on the table during which a series of betting rounds occur. The winner is the player who can put together the best 5-card hand from 2 of their pocket cards and 3 community cards according to standard poker hand rankings (see the rankings chart here).

The play begins once the blinds have been posted. Each player is dealt 4 cards, known as 'pocket cards' and the first round of betting takes place. Players can check, raise or fold in turn

Three community cards are then dealt in the center of the table. These are known as the 'flop' and a second round of betting takes place

The fourth card, or the 'turn' is dealt next into the center and the third round of betting follows. Finally, the fifth card known as the 'river' is dealt and the final round of betting takes place.

When all betting is complete, if there is more than one player remaining in the game, there will be a 'showdown' in which all players will show their hand. The player with the best 5 cards formed from 2 of their pocket cards and 3 community cards wins the pot. For example, if the player holds 4 aces, only 2 of those can be used as a winning hand, along with 3 community cards. If more than one player holds a winning hand, the pot is shared.

Most poker rooms offer one bet per round with 3 raises in which the final raise is capped
