How to play Omaha poker

Basic strategy

In Pot Limit and No Limit Omaha games, games are named for their curtain size (for example, $ 1 / $ 2 Omaha games are $ 1 for small blinds and $ 2 for large blinds).
Then the player starts betting on the left side of the big blinds.

In Fixed Limit Omaha games, a large blind is the same as a small bet, and a small blind is usually equal to half of a large blind, but can be larger depending on the stake. For example, in a $ 2 / $ 4 Limit game, the small blind is $ 1 and the big blind is $ 2. In the $ 15 / $ 30 Limit game, the small blind is $ 10 and the large blind is $ 15.

Four cards are now dealt to each player. The betting process starts clockwise from the player “under the gun” (clockwise directly from the big blind) around the table.

Preliminary flop

After seeing his hole, each player was able to play his hand by calling or raising a large blind. The action starts on the left side of the big blinds and is considered a ‘direct’ bet in this circle. This player can be folded, loaded or raised. For example, if a large blind was $ 2, it would cost $ 2 to make a call, or at least $ 4 to raise. The activity then moves clockwise around the table.

Note: The betting structure varies depending on the different versions of the game. Description of betting activities in Limit Omaha, No Limit Omaha, Pot Limit Omaha can be found below.

The bet continues on each bet until all active players (not folded) have placed an equal bet on the pot.

Flop

After the first round, the “flop” is placed face down on the board. The flop is the first three public cards available to all active players. Play starts directly clockwise from the active player button. Another round of betting begins. In Fixed Limit Omaha, all bets and add-ons are made with a small bet increase (e.g. $ 2 / $ 4 per game $ 2).

Turnover

When the betting is completed on the flop stage, the “turn” is displayed face to face on the board. This is the fourth public card in the Omaha game. Play starts directly clockwise from the active player button. Another round of betting begins. In Fixed Limit Omaha, betting and turnover increase with a large bet increase (e.g. $ 2 / $ 4 per game).

Goal

When the bet is completed, the “key” is displayed face to face on the board. This is the fifth, public card in Omaha poker. The final stage of the bet starts directly clockwise from the active player button.

Showdown

If more than one player is left at the end of the final bet, the person who made the last bet or raised will show the card if no bet is made in the last round. . The player with the best five cards wins the pot. Remember that players must use two of their four holes, and only two with exactly three cards on the board. In the case of the same hand, the pot is divided equally between the players with the best hands. After the pot is handed out, Omaha is ready to play a new poker game. The button now moves clockwise to the next player. If you like tournament poker , we recommend the Omaha tournament.
