In order to be a successful and winning player in Omaha High/Low (also known as Omaha 8 or better), it is important that you know and understand the odds of certain situations. The following are some important odds and probabilities that you should work at memorizing if possible.
- If you have all high cards, the chance the flop will contain two or three high cards is 30%.
- If you have A-2 in a nine handed game, there is a 36% probability that one or more players also have A-2.
- If you have a hand containing four low cards like A-2-3-4 or A-2-3-5, there is a 5.6% probability the flop will not have any low cards. There is a 16.2% chance it will contain all low cards, a 32% chance it will include one low card, and a 45.6% chance it will contain two low cards.
- You will be dealt A-2 approximately 6% of the time.
- You will be dealt A-2-3 approximately 1% of the time.
- If the board is unpaired before the river, it will pair approximately 27% of the time.
- In a nine handed game, approximately half the players at the table will be dealt a pocket pair before the flop.
The following is a list of the % chance you will improve your hand given the number of outs you have. An out is a card that will improve your hand. For example, you have an open-ended straight draw and either a 6 or jack will make you a straight. There are four 6's and four jacks left in the deck which means you have eight outs to make a straight.
