Make the best five-card hand using 2 and 3 of the 4 cards you are dealt as commons
Omaha Poker is similar to Texas Holdem Poker Online, following the flop, turn and river format of that type of poker. The main difference between these poker variants is that each player is dealt 4 cards and must use 2 of them as well as the 3 suited cards to build their hand.
After the dealing and betting rounds are completed, players show their face-down cards and the best five cards win. In the event of a draw, the bottom pot is split between the leading players.
Most online Omaha games follow one of three betting formats: pot-limit, no-limit, or fixed-limit.
Pot Limit Omaha Poker
The most popular form of online Omaha, in Pot Limit, the bet size is limited to how much is in the pot (for example, if the total pot is 100 rupees, the maximum bet size is 100 rupees.)
No Limit Omaha Poker
As the name implies, there is no limit to the size of the bet in an unlimited bet – players can bet the total amount of chips available to them.
Limit Omaha Poker
In fixed limit, the bet size and amount are structured and predetermined. Similar to fixed limit Texas Holdem Poker Online, bets and raises are the same amount as the big blind before the flop and on the flop itself (for example, if the big blind is 25 rupees, the bet size is 25 rupees.)
After the flop – on the turn and river – the bet/raise size is doubled (for example, if the big blind is 25 rupees, the bet size is 50 rupees.)
