Omaha Hi/Low

Omaha Hi Low Poker Games Rules

Rules and Description

Hi Low Omaha plays the same as regular Omaha, except for the additional way in which to win a share of the pot.

As in a regular game of Omaha, the Hi winner has the best poker hand. There is always a Hi winner. But in addition to a Hi winner, there can be a Low winner. The Low winner has 5 different cards below 9. For example, if between your two pocket and three community cards you had a hand consisting of a 2, 3, 5, 7 and 8 of mixed suits, you would have a Low hand.

If your qualifying Low hand is the best (i.e. lowest) you would be entitled to the Low share of the pot. Your share is dependent on how many other players win. (There may be no Low winner every hand.) You may play 2 different or the same pocket cards for Hi and for Low, along with any three community cards.
