Please see hand below and explain why janettomas won with a straight and I didn't. Surely we should have split it or am I overtired?
Many thanks

Just realised you can only use 3 community cards in Omaha to make your hand, unlike in Hold'Em.
Just learning Omaha so bit naive.
Thanks

GOOD LUCK

Luckily I won it back on my next hand. Earning VPPs whilst learning is cool too.

The old "Must use 2 of your cards rule" used to get me when I first started Omaha back in the day. Even when I knew the rule /blush.

Just another reason why the new league should start introducing other poker variants !!
