Omaha 8 or better

Share this
The order of betting, blinds, and play of the game is the same as Omaha.

Omaha 8 or better or ‘Omaha hi/lo' as it's commonly referred to is a high/low game, in which the low hand must qualify with an EIGHT or under for low. If there is no low in the hand, the high hand wins the whole pot.

In order for a low to be possible, there must be three cards that are eight or under on the table. It is possible for a player to win both the high and low. Example: A-2 hearts, A-5 spades are in player's hand. Board shows K-3-4 hearts, 2-10 off suit. Player has an Ace high flush and A-2-3-4-5 for low, (wheel).

Any two cards may be used for the high hand and any two for the low hand.
