How to Play Omaha Poker in Easy Steps
How to win the hand
Basically, Omaha poker is a game with community basis which has to play by two up to ten players on one set. You are able to win the chips if you can get the pot. And if you want to win the pot, you should follow one of these two terms:
- You are the only player on the pot because all other players were folding so you are left there alone.
- You possessed the best card in hand in the showdown.
Draw for the dealer
As I have said earlier, this game should be played by at least two players and 10 players in maximum number. Each player should have stacks of chips before the game could get started. The first move you have to do is doing draw for the dealer in the highest card.
You should dealer every player with one face up card. The player who has the highest rank (ace is the highest) will start the game at the first place as the dealer. If there are two players who have the highest card rank then the both players can deal the card to the rest players. Or if you want to make it easier, you can do suits to decide who the winner is. Using the suits of poker can be determined by the alphabet such as Clubs, Diamonds, Hearts, and Spades.
Put out the button of dealer
If the game has the dealer, you can give the player a white dealer button (it is white chip). The chip is used to make sure who the current in charge is. The player who holds the dealer button should shuffle the cards and deal the card at the first hand as well.
Put out the blinds
Before the dealer dealt the cards on each hand, basically the dealer has to do the “put out the blinds”. The player on the left side of the dealer should put the small blind while the rest should put the big blind.
Deal the cards
If the player is running out the cards, the dealer can actually deal the card. It should be started from the players on the left side of the dealer and continue with the clockwise turn. Every player will get a face down card until all players hold four face down card.
