Online Omaha Poker

June 21, 2010

To start this off lets quickly look at rakeback. Rakeback is something you get from the online poker room after paying tournament fees or rake in cash games. This fee is the tax for arranging poker games. It is simply the most important thing when starting with online poker as it will maximize your profit or help you get breakeven when you have a bad month. If you do not sign up for rakeback then it would be a very bad move. 

Omaha poker is more complex then  Texas Holdem. Omaha is quite unique on every limit  , you should being from the smaller stakes  . Instead of getting dealt two cards like in Holdem, in Omaha you get four cards  . Holdem and Omaha maybe do not seem so different but in reality Omaha is more complicated  .

I You can use one or both of your cards in Holdem   but in Omaha you can only use two of your four pocket cards when making the best poker hand. Flush is only possible if you have two of the needed suit cards in your hand . If you have Ks-Kc-Ah-Js and flop is 2h-3h-9h you cannot make a flush. When you have K-K-2-7 in your pocket and board is A-Q-J-T then you only have a pair of kings. If there is a set on the board you need to have a pair in your hand to make full house. If you have A-Q-9-7 and the board is A-Q-6-6-6 then you have three sixes with ace high. If the board is 2-2-T-T and you have A-T-3-4 then your hand is three of a kind, tens.

If you split up your cards then it is easier to understand your starting hands strength  . Out of all pocket hands you can have six combinations . 9-8-7-6 gives 9-8, 9-7, 9-6, 8-7, 8-6 and 7-6. All combinations are very good . Good starting hands give more draws, like a flush draw or a straight draw or both at the same time. The perfect hand would be As-Ts-Ac-Qc because you have two nut flush draws, full house draw, straight draw and quads draw. greatest difference between Holdem and Omaha is that in order to win you most likely will need the nuts or something one step down . In Holdem you probably think you have the best hand with a ten high flush but in Omaha you would need at least a king high flush to even consider having the best hand  . You basically need to play pocket cards which provide you with the best chance to make the absolute nuts. It’s quite simple actually, „Just play the nuts“!

Omaha is not the most popular game in online poker but it is very strong and the bigger online poker rooms are home for regular Omaha players which makes winning harder  . Since bigger rooms are full of regular players it is best to look for Noxwin rakeback deal or the other good option 888 Poker rakeback VIP program because these online poker rooms provide rakeback or cashback and also have a lot of beginner players at Omaha tables.
