In the Omaha Poker variant of the game of poker, each player across the table is dealt four personal cards, known as HOLE CARDS. This is followed by a round of betting and further followed by three cards opening up at once, known as the FLOP. This is followed by another round of betting before the fourth card or fourth street or TURN card is opened.
Yet another round of betting is allowed before the fifth card or fifth street or the RIVER card opens on the board. Another round of betting is here followed by the showdown. After the showdown, players across the table try to find their best combination of five cards, using precisely 2 hole cards of their own, along with 3 board cards or community cards. Players can’t use all 5 community cards as they can in Texas Hold’em.
In Omaha Poker, a dealer button is used with the same typical structure of having a small blind and big blind, left of the dealer, as in Texas Hold’em. The betting rounds and other rules also stay the same as it is in Hold’em, but the difference is that in Omaha, you can’t play the board and have to select a hand with 2 of your own cards and 3 from the board.
