Basic Rules of Omaha
Omaha is played the same way as Texas Hold’em concerning the use of blinds and dealer button. The differences between Omaha and Texas Hold’em are;
- In Omaha a player gets four cards from dealer.
- A player must use two of his four hole cards with three of the community cards to make a poker hand whereas in Texas Hold’em a player can play the board (all five community cards) or only one of the hole cards.
- Omaha is often played in high/low structure
