This Article Explains The Basic Rules Of Omaha (High) On The Best Poker Sites
Omaha looks like a tricky game, but boy there`s a lot of betting going on. The good news is that Omaha is basically holdem with four hole cards. The only tricky rule to remember is that you MUST use two of your hole cards and three community cards to make your hand.



1) The player to the left of the dealer posts the small blind (half a small bet).
2) The player to the left of the small blind posts the big blind (one small bet).
3) Everyone is dealt four cards face down. These are their hole cards.
4) The player to the left of the big blind (under the gun) starts the pre flop betting round.
5) Three cards are dealt face up in the middle. This is the flop. The cards in the middle are the community cards, or board.
6) There is a round of betting, started by the first active player to the left of the dealer.
7) One card is dealt face up in the middle. This is the turn.
8) There is a round of betting (in limit games, bets are now twice the size of the first two rounds).
9) One last card is dealt face up in the middle. This is the [damn] river, and usually ruins someone`s hand and makes someone else`s.
10) There is one final round of betting.
11) All active players show their hands down. Whoever can make the best five card poker hand with two from their hand and three from the board wins the pot. It`s always two from your hand and three from the board when you play Omaha. Always.

Omaha High only is a a lot wilder than holdem, and a bit more frustrating (unless you get a great flop, your opponents will always have a draw to something stronger, but then so will you). It`s a great game to learn though, and you can record some monster wins.
