Pre-Flop Tip for Beginners:
It is best to attempt only hands that could potentially go both ways. It would be difficult to picture a better Omaha Hi/Lo starting hand which does not consist of at least 1 ACE. Ensure that all 4 hole cards work simultaneously in order to add a value to your hand.
On The Flop:
The FLOP betting is the final round in the lower limit betting of $3. $3 will be the bet and raise amount on the flop, with the poker play restricted to 1 bet and 3 raises.
The poker play will be maintained around the poker table until finished, with a further TURN card being placed face-up, thus getting the betting no-stop action underway on the turn.
On The Flop Tip for Beginners:
Further continuation beyond the flop should only be done so with the nuts (or a draw to these nuts).
- Only 1 card remains.
- Bets and raises are all for the higher $6 limit.
- Rounds are limited to 1 bet and 3 raises.
Turn Tip for Beginners:
Both a high or low bet as well as a raise, with the nut hand will build the poker pot and lead to a potential win.
The final betting round will commence with the completion of the TURN, as the final card will then be placed on the board.
In the RIVER, the final card is dealt with all hands complete and bets + raises all for the higher $6 limit.
RIVER action is restricted to 1 bet and 3 raises.
River Tips for Beginners:
With a large pot, and the lack of real power, a possible value call on all made hands (high or low) should be considered.
General Omaha Hi/Lo Poker Tips for Beginners:
- Select the poker hands which you play very carefully.
- It is a common assumption that all good online Omaha Hi/Lo starting hands should contain a minimum of 1 ACE.
- Rather avoid play on card hands of middle rank, (i.e. 6-10).
- Tight + aggressive is the approach which generally will do the best.
- To proceed with all Omaha Hi/Lo hands, you should have nuts or at least draw to the nuts.
