|Omaha (play now) is similar to holdem in using a three-card flop on the board, a fourth boardcard, and then a fifth boardcard. Each player is dealt four holecards (instead of two) at the start. In order to make a hand, a player must use precisely two holecards with three boardcards. The betting is the same as in holdem. At the showdown, the entire four-card hand should be shown to receive the pot|
The best possible five card poker hand, using exactly two hole cards and three community cards, wins the pot.
All remaining players must use their two pocket cards and the three board cards..
All the rules of holdem apply to Omaha except the rule on playing the board, which is not possible in Omaha (because you must use two cards from your hand and three cards from the board).
