Omaha Rules
POKER RULES

Omaha is similar to Texas Hold'em. The difference is that the hands in Omaha are usually much better, since you get to choose from 9 cards total.
  1. Hole Cards. Each player is dealt four cards face down.
  2. The Flop. Three cards are dealt face up on the table.
  3. The Turn. A fourth card is dealt to the table.
  4. The River. Finally, a fifth card is dealt to the table.
The five cards on the table are community cards. Your hand is formed by taking exactly two hole cards and exactly three community cards, and forming the best poker hand possible. But remember, all the players have access to the community cards. When played for money, there is a round of betting after a round of cards is dealt (so four rounds of betting in total).
