I have a question:
On This hand I had Low 8,7,6,2,A and lost against the winner’s low 8,7,4,3,2.
So far I thought cards has to be as low as possible and A is the lowest, right? Please bring some light into this.
I believe you need to read the hand from left to right to compare (highest to lowest).
You had 8-7-6-2-A and your opponent had 8-7-4-3-2.
Reading from left to right, you both had the same 2 cards, 8-7, but at the 3rd card you had a 6 and your opponent had a 4 which is lower. That’s why yours wasn’t the lowest.
I hope this helps.
Yes, after that 3rd number (6 vs 4) the other 2 following are insignificant.
thx I have often wondered that myself thought I just saw it incorrectly
Look at the low as a number with the Ace being number 1 - the lowest number wins.
So 87,432 is lower than 87,621 - simple.
Hi or LO Omaha, Don’t like Omaha, don’t play it.
Thanks, your answer was a big help.
Tks very much you all. confusing, but makes some sense to me. just wonder how i did win the lows so far
why not ? hold-em player ? most people that don
t like hi/lo dont understand the game, I didn
t when I first started playing it and almost stopped, glad I didnt because it
s all I play now. If you think about it its hold-em (hi) with the added OPPORTUNITY to win lo, I`ve been beaten many times with a full house only to be saved by winning the “Lo”, just a thought blue, gl at the tables
Hello 1530, Thank you for the response. I never thought that I would a response. OMAHA, I have played several hands, but the game never captured my interest. “SIT’ IN GO” is the game I play the most. I’ve got slammed a few times before liked the game. By your response, I think that I will give OMAHA more rounds, and may get on the tables with you. Thank for the response. Guys like you keeps poker great. ………….BLUEDIME.
t go to the forums lately, so this is a reply to your post of Aug. 19th, if you ever want to get on a sng 2 player table to pick up any hints I might be able to give you in regards to Omaha hi/lo feel free to do so, its a little hard at first but once you learn " LO", it`s the same as hold-em, Obviously you can win twice or at least “split” the pot in hi/lo and you of course have only one winner in hold-em unless players have the exact same cards . let me know, 1530
Since our last contact, I have been training in OMAHA hi / lo. And I have found that Omaha is a real game I have won a few hands, and played in some MTT free rolls. I play as often as I can to gain the experience. But still the game, to me have a lot of bad beats. Maybe will catch you in a free roll or one of the Omaha games………Thanks
