Play Omaha Poker Online For Real Money
Texas Hold’em might be the most popular card games out there, but more and more people have fallen in love with the thrill when you play Omaha poker online for real money. A session of Omaha poker can be very similar to one of Texas Hold’em, as it follows the same hand ranking and players use the same five community cards. However, there’s a couple of big differences worth highlighting.
Omaha Poker Hole Cards
The major difference between Texas Hold’em and Omaha poker is that when you play Omaha you receive four Hole Cards (instead of the two cards you receive in Texas Hold’em). Each Omaha hand then proceeds similarly to Texas Hold’em, with the flop, turn and river all followed by a round of betting.
Omaha Hole Cards & Community Cards
The second big difference is how you use your Hole Cards and combine them with the Community Cards in Omaha. In Texas Hold’em you can use one or two (or even none) of your Hole Cards to make the best hand possible, however in Omaha you must use exactly two of your Hole Cards; no more and no less. So for example, if you have A♥ K♠ 5♠ 7♣ Hole Cards, and the Community Cards are 6♥ 9♥ 8♥ K♥ 2♣, your best hand is not a A-high Flush (6♥ 9♥ 8♥ K♥ A♥) as you don’t have 2 x ♥; but it’s actually a pair of K’s with an A kicker (9♥ 8♥ K♥ K♠ A♥) as you need to use exactly two Hole Cards.
It can take a little getting used to, but Omaha poker games can result in massive pots with big hands, and is definitely worth a look for all poker lovers. Download the GGPoker app today and get playing with our innovative and exclusive in-game features adding even more to the thrill.
