The truth is, Omaha and Hold'em are very similar so if you're already familiar with one, learning the other will be a snap. Watch the video to learn the basics and check out our free poker strategy section to take your PLO game to the next level. Just like Hold'em, Omaha uses a dealer button that moves one seat to the left after each hand and determines the dealing and betting order. Unlike Hold'em, each player gets four hole cards and must use exactly two of them, along with three community cards, to make the best five-card poker hand. Another important difference between PLO and No-Limit Hold'em is that the most you can bet and raise is equal to what's in the pot. Check out the video to learn a handy trick for quickly and easily calculating pot. The bottom line is that Pot-Limit Omaha is an action game that can give you the opportunity to win tons of money, if you know the rules.
