Omaha Poker High-Low - rules and Strategy


Game Description

Omaha poker hi lo is dealt in the same manner as Omaha poker, but the "best" (highest) and "worst" (lowest) hands split the pot. Aces count for low in low and either high or low in high. An A-2-3-4-5 is the best hand for low and and also makes a straight. To win low, your hand must be an 8 low or lower. Since different two card combination can be used from your hand for high and for low and the same player may win both high and low in the same hand, this game provides even more drawing opportunities per player than the high version of Omaha. These games can get very fast and furious.

Rules

1. All the rules of Omaha apply to Omaha high-low split except as below.
2. A qualifier of 8 or better for low applies to all high-low split games, unless a specific posting to the contrary is displayed. If there is no qualifying hand for low, the best high hand wins the whole pot.

Omaha High/Low is a very popular poker game. The list in the rightside links to Poker Rooms offering this game.
