Omaha Poker Rules

Omaha Poker is probably the third most popular online variant of poker. Omaha is very similar to Texas Hold'em due to the dealer dealing a 3-card Flop, then a forth and then a fifth community card. The betting is the same but the cards dealt and then which the player uses to make their hand during the showdown differs.

During the initial deal, the player will be dealt four personal cards which the other Omaha players can't see. The object of the game is to make the best five card hand available using two cards from the initial four and three poker cards from the table.

Omaha poker rules use a small disk, called the button, to show who is the dealer is. This goes clockwise round the table prior to each new hand. The dealer is the last to receive their cards on the initial deal and has the right to the last action during the round of betting.

To start the game, the player to the left of the dealer should put up a small blind and the player to the left of him a large blind. The Omaha poker dealer will then deal the four hole cards to each player, following which there will be a round of betting.

During each betting round, the players will each have to Bet, Check, Fold or Raise. The dealer will then place three community cards, face up, onto the table, called the Flop. Another round of betting will take place.

In the Omaha Rules, the dealer then places another community card onto the table, called the Turn or Forth Street. Another round of betting takes place.

Finally the dealer will place the last community card onto the table, called the River or Fifth Street. The players then have a last round of betting.

When the last round of betting has taken place, the players have the Showdown, where it is determined who has the best hand. Omaha Poker rules use the same ranking as any other poker games.

During the Showdown, the players will have to use two hole cards and three community cards out of the nine cards in view to make up their Omaha poker hand.

The player with the best hand then takes the value of the pot. If two players have the same value of hand then the pot is equally split.
