Omaha Hold'em Poker is a very exciting poker game that is gaining in poularity amongst online poker players.

In this game each player is dealt by the dealer 4 cards facing down and there are 5 community cards available to all the players to make the best possible poker hand.

Players must use 2 cards from their 4 hole cards and 3 cards from the community cards.

Here is the step by step process.

* 4 cards facing down are dealt to each player

* 1st round of betting occurs

* 3 community dealt facing up.

* 2nd round of betting occurs

* The 4th community card or "turn" card is dealt

* 3rd round of betting occurs

* The 5th community card or "river" card is dealt

* 4th final round of betting occurs

* Players reveal their hands - the showdown!

The dealer is identified by a round button also called a puck which is placed in front of him.

After each game this button is moved to the player immediately to the left and that player becomes the dealer.

Dealing always starts with the player to the immediate left of the dealer receiving the first card.

(1) However before the dealer deals the 1st card players are required to post blinds. The small blind is posted by the 1st player sitting on the left side of the dealer.The small blind might be $1. In this case the next player sitting on the left of the player posting the small blind will post the big blind which is always double the small blind, hence in this example $2.

After the cards are dealt betting starts with the next player siting on the left side of the player posting the $2 big blind. He can either fold his cards, match the big blind bet ($2) or raise this bet. And so on clockwise until the bet returns to the player with the big blind.

(2) The next step is the dealer deals 3 community cards, called the flop in the middle of the playing table.The first person required to act is the 1st player sitting on the left side of the dealer. He can eiter bet, fold or check.Then the betting moves to the next player to his left and so on until it returns to the dealer.

(3) Next we have the 4th community card or turn card being dealt and betting follows the same pattern as above.

(4) Next we have the last community card or river card being dealt and once again betting follows the same pattern as before.

(5) Players left in the game then show their hands and the best hand wins the pot,

General Omaha Poker Strategy:

A nut hand is usually required to win a pot in Omaha Hold'em poker. Very rare would a triple or double pair win this game.

A nut hand is like a pure straight or straight flush or a house or quads. This is because of the number of cards to choose from 4 in your hand and 5 community cards.Having 4 hole cards is like having 6 Texas Hold'em hands before the flop. So the combinations that can be created when you see the community cards are incredible and so you should always try to create nut hands in this game, anything less and you are in big trouble.

For this reason Omaha poker games tend to have huge pots because inexperienced players seeing a straight with the flop thinks they have a great hand and bet heavily only to be beaten by a house or hidden quads which are frequently made.
