Omaha Hi is a variation of Holdem that is growing quickly in popularity. It can be played with as few as two players, and as many as ten. The game consists of four betting rounds. Each player in a game of Omaha Hi is dealt four cards face down (hole cards), and five community cards are dealt face up for all players to share. Each player must combine exactly two of their hole cards with three community cards to make the best possible five-card poker hand.A variant of Omaha Hi is Omaha 8, or Omaha Hi-Lo. Omaha 8 shares the same basic structure as Omaha Hi, however rather than aiming to make only the best high five-card poker hand, players can also aim to make the best low five-card poker hand as well.
