Hi webby37563!

In Omaha, a player MUST use two cards from their hand. No more, no less. Due to this, you had KQT76 and the opp had KK77A for two pair. You did not have a straight, as you have to use two cards.

Good luck at the tables.

In NLHE, you can use up to all 5 cards on the board, so if it was hold'em, you would have the straight.

This is not the case in Omaha, as you have to use exactly 2 cards from your hand.
