The main rules are the same as other varieties of poker such as Texas Hold’em, No-Limit, Stud, Seven Card Stud, Five Card Draw, etc. What makes Omaha different is that the first two players in a tournament are eliminated and all the remaining players must fight to see who the final two are.
Each four people are placed into two groups of four. They have 10 minutes to compete and make an ante call on the dealer. At the end of the time, they are dealt another card.
Now the four cards are dealt in a random order. Then the dealer turns over the top two cards and reads the names. The person at the dealer turns down the top card, then turns over the second card and reads the name.
Now the four cards are turned back over, the dealer then reveals the remaining cards. Each of the remaining cards are laid face up. This continues until there are only two players left in the tournament.
After the last two players are eliminated the two players that remain must battle each other to see who the final two players are. The final two are then dealt out cards from the deck and the person with the highest card is declared the winner.
In a full tournament, there are usually three rounds with the final two players going against each other. Now, here is a great way to play Omaha, if you don’t know how to play.
