With all the TV exposure no limit hold not received I have seen a significant reduction in the number of “other” poker games, such as Omaha Hi / Low and Omaha Hi only . It was one of the best games in the house with pots four times the size of holdem games and that was the norm. They were also some of the most profitable to play, if you have the right tools at your disposal.
For those of you who do not know , high- low game is usually played eight or better , meaning you must have five unpaired cards eight or lower. “The Wheel ” , Ace to 5, is the best possible low followed by a 6 – 432A . Straight hands go both ways , and can draw the entire pot. Pot is usually divided into two parts , the high-side istorone low . So if you bylikolesa in your hands you will be sure to win the money back. You may have to share it with other players who also have a wheel , it is very common. You hands can be very powerful if you had a flush with your wheel , the higher the better , of course. Omaha 8 or luchsheflope based game where you get four cards and must play two of your hands to sdelatrukoy .
To play the game , the following are some basics . First, play four cards that work together. A234 is a great low hand, if you were with your suited ace. AK23 large double-sided hand, as if you were fit either K. AKQ2 large double-sided hand as well, but much better on the high side , and even more if you fit or double suited cards .

The high side scoops the entire pot if there is no low , is not that better than the likely polovinubanka if there is a low possible. Many councils have the lowest card on the river for there to be low and every time they miss someone with a high hand scoops the pot. The hands listed above should all be raised preflop , one more mistake the average Omaha player makes is that they for some reason would like to see the flop cheaply with bad hands ipribyl player will use it. These same poor players will see that flop no matter what. They will take those bad cards and nazyvatkryshkami bank in hopes of the deck jumping up and kissing them on the cheek with a magic flop. It does not happen very often, though .
Do not forget to play with four cards that work together and always , always, always have an ace in the hand. The other three cards must be paint , K, Q, J, 10 or wheel cards two, three, four or five , or some combination of these two groups. Jump on the high side , when all is one , or no low card on the flop and fit your hand on the flop or fold. One last thing, draw to the nuts , either on the high or low side , or at least know if you do not you’ll gambling
