Omaha Hold 'em Poker - Rules - Colorado

The Play -- Omaha Hold ‘Em Poker. The games of Omaha high-low split hold ‘em and Omaha high hold ‘em poker must be played according to the following rules:
  1. The dealer shall deal four cards to each player. After each player has received four cards, there is a betting round;

  2. The dealer burns the top card of the deck and deals a three card flop;

  3. After the flop, the betting continues for another round

  4. The dealer burns a card and deals a fourth community card. Another betting round occurs. The dealer burns a card and deals a fifth community card for the final betting round. After all bets are made, and if there are two or more players remaining in the game, there is a showdown.

    1. In Omaha high hold ‘em, the best qualifying high hand wins the pot.
    2. In Omaha high-low split hold ‘em, the best qualifying high hand and the best qualifying low hand split the pot.

      1. If there is no qualifying low hand, a player who wins high receives the entire pot.
      2. A player who wins in one direction and ties a player in the other direction receives three-quarters of the pot.
      3. A player who wins in both directions without a tie receives all of the pot.
      4. Aces may be used for either high or low. At the discretion of the casino, a qualifier may be used to restrict the low hands. Straights and flushes do not impair the value of a hand for low.

    3. In order for a player to win, a player must use two cards from the player’s hand combined with three cards only from the community cards to make the best five card hand. A player may use any two cards from the player’s hand for high and the same two or any two cards for low.
