Understanding Omaha Poker

Omaha Poker Basics

The Basics

Omaha Poker is very similar to Texas Hold’em. The main differences between Omaha Poker and Texas Hold’em are that you are dealt four pocket cards instead of two and you must use exactly two of them to form your poker hand. To fully understand and master Omaha Poker, Omaha beginners should start by learning the basics of Omaha Poker strategy and mindset.

Position is very important= As Omaha Poker is a drawing game it is much easier to play when you are in position. When you are in position, you can most accurately bet your strong hands and you are also able to bluff, if you choose. Players out of position are usually unable to bluff in Omaha Poker.

Stay in the hand= Starting with four cards in Omaha Poker gives players many more reasons to stay in the hand to see the flop. This tends to drive up the pot size and make it extremely worthwhile for you when you’re in position.

Play Omaha

No slow play = Even weak hands can increase in value through the betting rounds which is why strong hands should always make large bets. As players are more likely to remain in the hand, early raises can be risky unless you know that you have a good chance at winning.

Less variance= Omaha Poker is said to have less variance, or luck, than Texas Hold’em. This is because players see a higher percentage of cards and can more accurately calculate how many outs they have to make their hand. Omaha Poker is considered a more straightforward, mathematical game than Texas Hold’em.

Nuts are important= With four pocket cards dealt to everyone you should assume that the other players remaining in the betting are more likely to have made their hands. When you know you can win the hand, go all the way.
