Omaha Poker is a poker game derived from Texas Hold’em poker. It puts skill to the test more than other poker game variants because each player is dealt 4 cards in the game out of which 2 and only 2 have to be used to make your best 5 card combination. The community cards open as in Texas Hold’em but a player can use only 3 of them to make his best hand.
Types of Omaha Poker Games:
Pot Limit Omaha Poker –This is the most popular variant of Omaha Poker. Called PLO, in this a player can bet what is in the pot at the time of betting (i.e. Rs. 100 into a Rs. 100 pot).
