All Omaha Games
Omaha is played with a standard 52-card deck. Each player receives four (4) hole cards face-down followed by an initial round of betting.
After the initial round of betting is concluded, three (3) community cards (called “the flop”) are dealt face-up on the board which are shared among all players, followed by a round of betting.
After that round of betting is concluded, a fourth (4th) community card is dealt face-up on the board (called “the turn” or “4th street”) followed by a round of betting.
After that round of betting is concluded, a fifth (5th) and final community card is dealt face-up on the board (called “the river” or “5th street”) followed by a final round of betting.
After the final round of betting is completed, remaining players must use a combination of precisely two hole cards and precisely three community cards from the board to make the best hand possible. No other combination of hole cards or community cards from the board may be used to make a hand.
Omaha High Low Split 8 or Better
If there is a qualifying low-hand, the high-hand and the low-hand split the pot. The same player may win both the high and the low. If there is no qualifying low-hand, the high hand will win the entire pot.
A low-hand must be eight (8) or better to qualify. In other words, the player’s low-hand cannot contain a pair or higher ranked hand, and the highest valued card cannot be more than an eight (8). Please note that a qualifying low-hand is not possible unless there are at least three (3) different cards on the community board with a value of eight (8) or less.
A player may use one set of five cards to make a high-hand and the same or a different grouping of cards to make a low-hand.
The amount of the Blinds and the Bets are posted at each table. Players may only bet the fixed amount designated for each round of betting. For example, in a $4-$8 Limit game, players may only bet and raise in fixed increments of $4 in the initial betting round and after the Flop; and may only bet and raise in fixed increments of $8 in the subsequent two betting rounds.
When facing a bet, players have the option of calling the bet or raising the bet by the amount of the fixed wager.
In all games, players receive action up to the amount the player wagers on the hand. Players do not forfeit the amount of their prior wagers already in the pot when they do not have enough money to call the action facing them.
If there is an odd number of total chips in the pot, the odd chip goes to the player(s) with the high-hand. If the odd chip is between two players with a high-hand or low-hand the odd chip goes to the player closest to the dealer button.
Pot Limit Omaha
All Omaha High Low Split 8 or Better rules apply except as follows:
The player(s) with the high-hand receives the entire pot.
Players may call the total amount of the pot and then raise up to the amount of the new pot that includes the player’s call bet.
For example, if the total pot is $20, the player may check, or may wager any amount from calling the pot for $20 to a maximum of $60 (a theoretical call ($20) of the original $20 pot plus the amount of the new pot including his theoretical call ($40) for a total wager of $60).
If the player in the above example wagers the maximum of $60, then the total pot facing the next player is $80. That player must call the pot for $80, and may raise up to a total of $160 for a total wager of $240 (a theoretical call ($80) of the original $80 pot plus the amount of the new pot including his theoretical call ($160) for a total wager of $240). The next player now faces a $320 pot.
All Omaha High Low Split 8 or Better rules apply except that each player receives five (5) hole cards instead of four (4) hole cards. Players must still use a combination of precisely two hole cards and precisely three community cards from the board to make the best hand possible. No other combination of hole cards or community cards from the board may be used to make a hand.
