just as in Hold ’em. There is a round of betting. In the above example, the minimum bet would be $10 (the size of the big blind), and the maximum bet would be the size of the pot.

All raises in all remaining rounds behave as described above.

Omaha The Flop

The dealer then puts out a fourth (or turn) card, followed by a round of betting.

The dealer then puts out a fifth (or river) card, followed by a round of betting.

The winner is the player who makes the best possible five card hand using exactly two cards from their hand and three cards from the board.

This is important. Unlike Hold ’em, in Omaha Hi Poker you cannot use just one card from your hand, nor can you play the board.

For example:

Your hand: Ah Kc Qc Jc The board: 3h 4h 5h 6h 7h

You DO NOT have an ace-high nut flush, nor can you simply play the board for a straight flush. Using two cards from your hand, your best hand is:

Ah Kc 7h 6h 5h

In other words, you should have folded.
