How to Play Casino Poker Games : Omaha Holdem Poker Hands That Look Good But Are Not


Let’s look now at some Omaha hands that can
get you in to trouble and aren’t worth the
trouble they can get you in. Here’s one that
looks good but it isn’t. It’s aces with nothing
else going on. You’ve got a pair of aces,
a nine and a four and their all different
suits. This rainbow hand needs to go in the
muck unless maybe you want to play it in Omaha
Eight or Better and hope for a low hand. Be
very careful with this hand. Here’s another
one. You know Omaha players often look for
two pairs in their hand. Because if you have
two pairs in your hand you have a very high
chance of flopping three of a kind. You can
either get three threes or three kings. The
problem here is that there’s not much else
going on. Kings and threes are so far apart
on the spectrum that there’s no kin activity
between them. You can’t make a straight. In
this case you might make a flush. But the
problem will be that if the ace of diamonds
isn’t on the board you’re worried that your
flush isn’t the best. And often in Omaha you
need the nut flush to win with a flush. In
Omaha if there’s something out there that
can beat you someone probably has it.
