Omaha Rules

Omaha is a community card poker game ("flop game") similar to Texas hold 'em, where each player is dealt four cards and must make his best hand using exactly two of them, plus exactly three of the five community cards. The basic differences between Omaha and Texas hold 'em are these: first, each player is dealt four cards to his private hand instead of two. The betting rounds and layout of community cards are identical. At showdown, each player's hand is the best five-card hand he can make from exactly three of the five cards on the board, plus exactly two of his own cards. Unlike Texas hold 'em, a player cannot play four or five of the cards on the board with fewer than two of his own.

  • Royal flush: a hand containing an ace-high straight flush (i.e. A♣ K♣ Q♣ J♣ 10♣)
  • Straight flush: a hand which contains five cards in sequence, all of the same suit.
  • Four of a kind: a hand containing four cards of one rank, and an unmatched card.
  • Full house: also known as a boat or a full boat, is a hand which contains three matching cards of one rank, plus two matching cards of another rank.
  • Flush: a hand which contains five cards of the same suit, not in rank sequence.
  • Straight: a hand containing five cards of sequential rank, of varying suits.
  • Three of a kind: also called trips, is a hand which contains three cards of the same rank, plus two unmatched cards.
  • Two pair: a hand containing two cards of the same rank, plus two cards of another rank (that match each other but not the first pair), plus one unmatched card.
  • One Pair: a hand containing two cards of the same rank, plus three unmatched cards.
