Omaha Pot Limit Poker
Omaha Pot Limit Poker Rules
- Four hole, or face-down, cards are dealt to each player. The player to the left of the Big Blind is the first to play. He or she chooses to fold, raise or bet. If there are no raises, the Big Blind may raise or call. If the Small Blind chooses not to match the bet, he or she folds and gives up the bet.
- As the Omaha Pot Limit Poker play continues, players choose what they want to bet as long as it's not over what is in the pot. After a call, raises can be made.
- The Flop, which is 3 community cards, is dealt in the 2nd round. Play continues as players either fold, raise or call. After the Turn, which is the 4th card, is shown in the 3rd round, more betting occurs.
- The River, which is the 5th and last card in Omaha Pot Limit, is shown in the 4th round. Players must make the best Poker hand with the strict stipulation of combining 2 of their hole cards with 3 of the community cards. Since 9 cards are used to create the 5 card Poker hand, winners often have hands with flushes and straights.
