Omaha Hi/Lo......


Well it's definately not No Limit Hold Em.......

By: suki704 @ 23:43 (EDT) / 2 / Comment ( 0 )
I'd never played an Omaha Hi/Lo game before so I figured the best teacher is experience and enrolled in a play money tournament on Poker Stars... OK I did horrible but I did win a few hands with absolutely nothing that I could see. I tried a few more and still didn't understand how a flush got beaten by 2 pairs, kings and fours. I would really like to understand the fundamentals of this game... Why is 23457 a good hand? It's not a straight.. it wasn't a flush but I won with it. If anyone can help me with basic explanantion, that would be wonderful. I don't quite understand all the card lingo yet, so the more thorough and plain the explanation, the better. Be warned: I ask a lot of questions.
