Omaha Strategy

Omaha Strategy

Omaha Hold'em is not as popular as Texas Hold'em, but it is played at a significant number of online and land-based casinos. The competition for this game is comparatively less, which is why mastering it can give you a good chance of winning real money. If you have already played Texas Hold'em, playing Omaha can be a little confusing in the beginning as the rules are different.

So the first thing to understand is the rules and how Omaha Hold'em is played.

Hand Combinations

Among the most important things to learn before you start playing Omaha are the hand combinations. Unlike in Texas Hold'em, in Omaha Hold'em you are dealt with 4 hole cards, which increase the number of possible combinations you can make by so many times.

The Gameplay

Understanding the game play in Omaha is as important if you want t better chance at winning. Know that of the hole cards you are dealt, you can only use two and the remaining three community cards to make the best card hand possible. That said, the best hand you'd make in Texas Hold'em need not be the top one in Omaha too. Know that and you'll know how to create a better hand at an Omaha table.

The gameplay in Omaha, is the same as in Texas - two layers posy eth blind, followed by the flop, the turn and the river.

Pot Size is Not Limited

The bet size in Omaha is not limited, neither is it unlimited. But it depends on the existing pot size, so be wary of the bet amount you want to place, and bet based on the hand dealt to you. Bankroll management is one of the most important things you should learn about for PLO before getting started. Avoid burning big bucks as beginner, and stick to just 100BB or less.

Move on to the bigger tables as you get better.
