Omaha Hi-Lo Poker

Omaha Hi-Lo is growing quickly in popularity throughout the poker world. Because there are so many possibilities to win, Omaha pots are generally much larger than Hold'em pots. This also adds to the attraction of the game. Most pots have two or more winners. Omaha can be played with limits, pot limit, or no limit.

Omaha Hi-Lo is a community card game. All players share the 5 community cards turned face up in the middle of the table. This aspect of shared cards creates many exciting possibilities since many times the winner of the hand is determined not by the actual pairs that you have made with your hand, but by the kicker (next highest value card) that you hold when the other card has made a pair. Position is very important in this as well as in all flop games, since when you have the button (becoming the theoretical dealer), you are last to act on every betting round.

Large amounts of action before and after the flop are created in Omaha since many pots are jammed (raised and reraised) by one player with high cards going for the high end of the pot and another player going for low end of pot, each betting on the relative strength that they place on these particular hands.
