Omaha Poker rules

Omaha (also called Omaha High) is a poker game for two to ten players with fairly simple rules. The object is to make the best 5-card poker hand using 2 of the 4 cards dealt face down to you and 3 of the 5 common cards dealt face up on the table. Here is the flow of play:

The 5-card Poker hands shown below are ranked from highest (Royal Flush) to lowest (High Card). A hand with a higher rank beats any hand with a lower rank.

Example Rank of Hands from Highest to Lowest in Omaha Poker

Royal Flush, Ace high Hearts
Royal Flush
"Royal"
The five highest ranking cards of a suit. A Royal Flush is essentially an Ace high Straight Flush.

Straight Flush, Five high
Straight Flush
Any five cards of the same suit in consecutive order. The example is a five high Straight Flush. (Only the Ace can be high or low for Straights).

Four Kings
Four of a Kind
"Quads"
Four cards of the same rank (for example, 4 Kings), with one dissimilar card.

Full House, Queens over Twos
Full House
"Full Boat"
A triple of one rank plus a pair of another. The example is Queens over Twos, which beats Jacks over Aces because the triple is taken first.

Flush, King high
Flush
Any five non-consecutive cards of the same suit. (If they are consecutive, you have a Straight Flush).

Straight, Ace high
Straight
"Wheel"
Any five consecutive cards of mixed suits. Ace can be high (next to a King) or low (next to a 2) but not both at the same time.

Three Fives
Three of a Kind
"Trips", "Triplets", "Set"
Three cards of the same rank (a triple), with two dissimilar cards. (If the other two made a pair, you would have a Full House).

Two Pair, Sevens and Fours

Any pair of one rank, plus any pair of another rank. If two hands have the same high pair, the second pair decides the winner. If both pairs tie, the remaining high cards decide.

A pair of Tens
Pair
Any two cards of the same rank. When two hands have the same pair, the remaining high cards decide.
