How to play Omaha poker?

Because a player’s position affects the game a “Dealer Puck” is placed in front of one player. The puck will determine the order of play for the coming hand.

After each hand the dealer puck rotates clockwise to ensure fairness for all players. Before the cards are dealt the two players to the left of the dealer puck must pay the “Blinds”. A blind is an amount that must be paid before players see their cards.

The player immediately to the pucks left pays the “Small Blind” equal to half the minimum bet.  The player sitting to the left of the small blind pays the “Big Blind” equal to the minimum bet.

After the blinds have been posted each player is dealt four whole cards facedown. Each player may use only two of these whole cards in their final five-card hand.

Once all the players have their cards bedding begins with the player sitting left of the big blind. The first player may “Call” the amount posted by the big blind “Raise” or “Fold” their hand. The next player may call the amount put in by the previous player raise or fold their hand.

This continues clockwise with each player able to call the amount last bet raise or fold the small and big blind have the same options to call raise or fold. However, the amount they have already paid in blinds is deducted from the price of “Calling”. Betting continues until each player has called the amount or amounts previously bet raised or folded.

There is a maximum of one bet followed by three additional raises each betting round. After the first round of betting is complete three cards are dealt face up on the table (The Flop). Cards dealt face-up our “Community Cards”. These will be used by all players at the table. Each player must use three of these community cards in their final five-card hand. After the flop has been dealt another round of betting begins.
