Trying out Omaha

So usually I only play No Limit Texas Hold’em as it’s the only game I know how to play, but I tried Omaha earlier, after reading up a helpful article about how it works on the Help page, so it’s basically the same except you have two extra cards in hand, but can only use two held cards with the board to make hands. I managed to figure it out in the end, might start playing a few more games here and there. Still need to get used to it for now.

It’s different, plus the purple table cloth looks different but I’m sure I’ll get used to it. I’ve read about the other game types, 7 card stud sounds quite complicated. Texas Hold’em is still my favourite but I’ll see if I can get into Omaha some more. Anybody else trying other types of games?

I do love Omaha, especially Hi-Lo. I had to review hand strength rules for Lo a couple of times, but once I internalized the rules, I found it very engaging. I like Royal too, but it’s really hard to know when to play in Royal. Good for you for mixing it up!

Got it, I’m aware of the Freeroll tournaments already, just haven’t tried any Omaha ones as of yet. Thanks.

You are welcome

Omaha can be a lot of fun. Just remember you MUST use two and ONLY two cards from your hand. I got fooled a few times before I ingrained that in my memory and play style.

Yep, I managed to catch onto that pretty quick. The small text notification of what you have just above the board is really useful for me in Omaha, I try not to use it in Texas Hold’em as it’s much easier to read hands on there, but with two extra cards in hand, it’s very useful.

Sometime I get confused playing Omaha and think I am playing Omaha Hi/Lo

I read about the Hi/Lo versions, sounds a bit more complicated so I’ll stick to the plain old regular recipe for now.
