A popular way to keep traditional poker games interesting is to slightly change the rules of the game. These variations are usually known as dealer's choice poker games. Super Omaha is an example of a dealer's choice game that is based off of Omaha. Super Omaha has almost all of the same rules as regular Omaha. The only difference is that each player is dealt five hole cards instead of four. Each player's hand must still be made up of two of their hole cards and three community cards. Super Omaha can be played in a high-low variation just like traditional Omaha.

Super Omaha Rules

The only difference between Super Omaha and regular Omaha occurs when the cards are dealt. Players are dealt five cards in Super Omaha compared to only four in regular Omaha. The rest of the game plays out just like a traditional game of Omaha. A betting round occurs after the cards are dealt. Players have three choices in each betting round. They can choose to fold and pay nothing to the pot. In this case, the player will have to discard their hand and wait for the next deal. A player can also call and match the amount of the big blind. Finally, a player can choose to raise. They will at least have to match the amount of the big blind if they raise. However, a player can choose to raise more if they would like.

The flop is placed on the table after the initial betting round in Super Omaha. The flop consists of three cards that are dealt face up. A round of betting begins after the flop is placed on the table. The turn is then added to the flop after betting is complete. The turn is a single card. Another round of betting occurs and the final card, the river, is placed on the table. There is a final round of betting after the river is dealt in Super Omaha. The five cards that are dealt face up on the table are known as community cards or board cards.

All players that remain after the river betting round participate in the showdown. The player with the best hand will win the pot during the showdown. Players make their hands by using two of their five hole cards and three community cards. Winning hands in Super Omaha are judged based on traditional poker rules. A royal flush is the highest hand in Super Omaha. A high card is the lowest winning hand that is possible in the game. The player with the best hand wins the entire pot in Super Omaha. The game is over and a new dealer is chosen after the pot is awarded.
