Omaha

Omaha - poker is an exciting game derived from Texas Hold'em. Each player is dealt four private cards («hole cards») which belong only to that player. Five community cards are dealt face-up on the «board». All players use exactly three of the five community cards together with exactly two of their hole cards to make the best five-card poker hand. Remember, in Omaha you must use exactly two hole cards and exactly three board cards.

Blinds

Omaha is played with blinds. Before the cards are dealt, two players to the left of the dealer post a small and a big blind to create a starting pot.

The deal

When the blinds have been posted, each player is dealt four cards face down, the hole cards. Then the first betting round takes place, starting with the player to the left of the big blind.

The flop

When the first betting round is finished, three cards are dealt face up on the table. They are called «the flop». Then the second betting round takes place, starting with the first player to the left of the dealer who is still in the hand.

The turn (fourth street)

After the second betting round, the fourth community card is dealt. It is called the turn. The third betting round takes place, starting with the first player to the left of the dealer who is still in the hand.

The river (fifth street)

The fifth and last community card is called the river. Now the hand is concluded by the fourth and last betting round, again starting with the first player to the left of the dealer who is still in the hand. If more than one player remains in the hand after the betting, there is a showdown.
