Omaha is a community card game with four betting rounds. There are two important differences between Texas Hold’em and Omaha: in Omaha each player is dealt four hole cards instead of two.
One player acts as a dealer, the position he occupies is called “button” (or “button”, the dealer position moves clockwise after each hand). The two players left of the dealer are the small blind and big blind. They are the only players who have money in the pot before any cards are dealt. Each player receives four cards that are not shown to others, called hole cards.
The first betting round is initiated by the player sitting to the left of the big blind and continues clockwise. When the first betting round is finished three community cards are placed on the table, is what is called the “flop”. The second round of betting starts with the first player left of the button that is still in the hand. The betting continues clockwise. When the second round of betting is finished, on the table puts another community card, called the “turn”.
The third round of betting starts with the first player left of the button that is still in the hand. The betting continues clockwise and the “turn” are doubled. When the third round of betting is finished, the table stands a fifth community card, the “river”. The fourth round of betting starts with the first player left of the button that is still in the hand. The betting continues clockwise.
