A community card game similar to Texas Hold’em but with each player being dealt four cards and having to make the best hand using two of the plus three of the five community cards. Played in Limit, No Limit & Pot Limit.
Omaha is a Poker game in which each player receives four cards as his initial hand. Each player MUST use a specific combination of five cards; any two out of his hand and any three from the board (community cards) to form the best five card poker hand. The board cards are dealt in three sequences known as the “flop”, the “turn” and the “river”; these are the same as in Hold’em.
The betting structure for all Omaha games will follow the betting structure rules as described in the Texas Hold’em section.
A player may NOT use all of the board cards (“playing the board”) because the only combination of five cards allowed is: two from the hand, three from the board.
