Rules of Omaha High-Low Split

Welcome to the coolest game on the planet. The same rules as standard Omaha up until the showdown. Then the pot is split equally between the best high hand, and the best qualifying low hand. If there is no qualifying low hand, the high hand wins the entire pot.

Straights and flushes do not count against the low, but pairs do. To qualify, no card from the low hand may be above an 8.

A player can scoop both high and low, winning the entire pot. This can be done with one five-card hand that works both ways . . .{Ah, 2h, 3h, 4h, 5h} (The best possible low, as well as a straight flush) ... or with two different five-card hands made up from the same holding.

Order of play

  1. Each player is dealt four hole cards, face-down. (Your hole cards will appear face-up on your screen, but no one else can see them. We promise.)

  2. There is a round of betting, started by the two blind-bets.

  3. Three cards, the flop, are dealt face-up to the center of the table. These are community cards that all players use in making their hands.

  4. There is a round of betting.

  5. A fourth community card, the turn, is dealt face-up to the center of the table.

  6. There is a round of betting.

  7. A fifth community card, the river, is dealt face-up to the center of the table.

  8. There is a final round of betting.

The pot is split evenly between the best five-card high hand and the best qualifying five-card low hand. A five-card hand must include exactly two hole cards and three community cards. If multiple players show the identical best hand, that half of the pot is split evenly between those players.

Omaha H/L (8) is offered in Fixed Limit and Pot Limit structures. In Fixed Limit Omaha H/L (8), the first two betting rounds (preflop and on the flop) are at the lower limit; the last two rounds are at the higher limit.
