Owing to its frequently large pots, Omaha Hi/Lo (also called "Omaha High Low", "Omaha H/L", "Omaha/8" or "Omaha 8-or-better") has become a hugely popular game around the world. Some people think...
Omaha Hi Lo Rules Overview Omaha 8 , also known as Omaha Eight or Better , or Omaha high low split ('Hi/Lo') , is a split pot game. The best high hand wins half of the pot, and the best low hand wins the other half of the pot.
Most Omaha Hi Lo players enter any pot where they hold an ace and a two, so low hands that don’t have an ace and two on the board are often split between two or more players. In this case the player with the best high hand gets half the pot and the two players with the tied low hand each receive a quarter of the pot.
Omaha Hi-Lo, also known as Omaha High-Low, O8 and Omaha 8-or-Better, is one of the most popular and entertaining forms of poker in the world. If you’ve played Omaha High or Pot-Limit Omaha before, Omaha Hi-Lo is played according to almost identical rules.
With Omaha Hi-Low, players have to form a low hand (less than 8), using the rules of Omaha poker games. There is also a high hand – any hand that is not a low hand scoops up 50% of the pot. If there is no qualifying low hand, the high hand wins it all.
