Since the online poker boom has swept the globe, avid Texas Hold ‘em players have sought something new and rewarding to challenge their otherwise perfected poker game. Often times these players find themselves seated at an Omaha Poker table. However, some poker rooms don’t have a lot of Omaha traffic, while some don’t even offer the game. These are the poker sites that typically attract a lot of rookies, who just don’t realize there are other variations of poker than Texas. Don’t waste your time signing up at a room to find out that they “offer” Omaha, but don’t have anyone playing it on the site. Here’s a rundown on the best Omaha Poker sites, Full Tilt and PokerStars, where you will always find the best Omaha Poker action on the Net. It isn’t hard to figure out why the two biggest online poker rooms offer Omaha Poker; obviously with so many players, there’s a high demand for alternative games, and they both accept US players.

Full Tilt Poker

Full Tilt

First of all, Full Tilt Poker has some of the best Omaha Poker action you’ll find. The Omaha Poker traffic is busting at the seams and so are the pots. Pros play Pot-Limit Omaha Poker at Full tilt’s $200/$400 table limits all the time with pots that exceed $400,000, but you can start out as low as $0.05/$0.10 on Pot-Limit Omaha Poker tables. The highest Pot-Limit action is $500/$1000. Fixed-Limit Omaha Poker starts out at $0.25/$0.50 and goes up to $15/30. Full Tilt also offers No-Limit Omaha Hi/Lo and Omaha Poker tournaments run pretty solid, as well, at more than 25 tournaments per day, and around 500 players playing Omaha Poker online at Full Tilt at any given time (600 playing Omaha Hi/Lo). The $250,000 Guaranteed Pot-Limit Omaha tournament is also offered regularly, and is likely the biggest online Omaha Poker tournament available.



Second, PokerStars is the best Omaha Poker site, with typically about 600 players playing Omaha (700 playing Omaha Hi/Lo) and hosting at least 40 Omaha Poker tournaments every day. Pot-Limit Omaha is available at stakes as low as $0.01/$0.02 (you can’t get any lower) up to $200/$400. Fixed-Limit Omaha games start out at $0.02/$0.04 up to $15/$30. The biggest Omaha Poker tournament at PokerStars is the $10,000 Guaranteed Omaha tournament with a buy-in of $215, though you can play in other Omaha tournaments for as low as $5.50, including Omaha re-buy tournaments. The Omaha action here is actually pretty loose, which is why PokerStars is one of the best Omaha Poker sites on the Internet.
