Omaha RulesOmaha 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.
- Hole Cards. Each player is dealt four cards face down.
- The Flop. Three cards are dealt face up on the table.
- The Turn. A fourth card is dealt to the table.
- The River. Finally, a fifth card is dealt to the table.
In this example, you have a straight flush, because you can use the Q 9 8 on the board with the J 10 in your hand.
In this example, you have two pairs, Kings over Tens. Note that you cannot use all three Kings in your hand, since you must use exactly two hole cards.
In this example, you have trip Tens. You cannot use your Ace with the Ace on the board to make a full house, because you must use exactly three community cards. (You would pick the three tens). Your final poker hand is TTTAK.
