Kicking Off a Brand New Game – 5-Card Omaha

5-Card Omaha is the new rage in the poker world with crazy odds, big suck outs, and plenty of bad beats on the cards.

The wild odds of Pot Limit Omaha just stepped up to another level with the 4-Card version still pulling out the smash hit Full House and Straight Flush draws, but can you believe there is still more to be had out of playing Omaha online?

A twist in the tale on the rampant Omaha tables has stirred up the poker community rampant as the 5-Card version of the game is starting to hit the online scene, and it is crazier than ever. Poker’s action junkies are just about to get more than they bargained for as the quick firing pots of Texas Hold’em No Limit and the top of the suck out charts Omaha step aside and make way for Big “O”.

Big “O” gives players 5 hole cards, but it sticks to the same rules as Omaha. With one more card to figure out the odds of turning a big hand out of nothing, this is a game that will make or break your bankroll. The rules stay the same, giving players the option to use a minimum and a maximum of two cards by the showdown. The pre-flop action doesn’t dissuade many buyers with sizeable pots growing, so if you fancy a shot at Big “O”, make sure you come fully loaded because the swings are big.

With the rules of Omaha stating that you have to use two cards from your hole card hand, players can combine their 4-card Omaha hand into a massive six 2-card combinations. Omaha has grown a reputation because of this massive number of prospective hands at the tables, for example, a 6-max table with each player ringing in six hands of 2-cards gives the table a massive thirty-six hands to take a stab at the flop, turn and river.



5-Card Omaha throws away the old stats and virtually doubles up the numbers. With 5 cards combined, players can make ten 2-card combinations from a single hand. Let’s take this back to a 6-max table game and there is an incredible ten 2-card hands per player at six different seats, giving the table not only unfoldable hands, but it also stirs up sixty 2-card plays that all have a chance of connecting with the board.

There is nothing out there quite like it in terms of action, thrills, spills and excitement and it is already being touted on the new Spring Championship of Online Poker, so get your bonus codes ready and start throwing your free cash at this game because any new game in poker means a new chance to take advantage of a new style and rake in some big pots from those that don’t know the odds.
