Question about Position in Omaha vs Holdem?
Position isnít as big of a factor in Omaha as in holdíem (in my opinion!). But if you watch the action, position can be used as a bluffing
opportunity. If there doesnít seem to be much action, a hand like two-pair can usually bet out thinking the hand is good. A late position player may call with the intention of bluffing at a turn card that looks like it hit a draw and try to chase out the opponent if they then check. They may also be trapping, so know your player, and you may even try that move yourself in early position.
Additionally, later position allows you to read the opponentsí hands better. If there are three flush cards on a board and you have just the ace of that suit, a bet and a raise tells
you that the raiser probably has the flush and wants to know where the ace is. No, you donít have the flush and canít improve to make it, but if you call (hopefully with some kind of two pair/set draw to pair the board so you arenít totally naked with the ďdry aceĒ) and they put in a smallish bet or check on the river, you might steal the pot by blasting them out with a pot-sized bet, representing the ace high flush that you know they donít have.
