Can someone tell me what a qualifying hand in Omaha Hi/Lo is? I have only played that a few time and still have trouble determining what a qualify hand for low is. There have been times that I thought I would have a low hand but it would come up saying no qualifying hand. I usually just play regular Omaha.

same game as plo. cept two cards from ur hand need to be used as ur low. Eight or better... very simple. Go into a ring game and just watch. wont take u but a few hands to get the knack of it

To have a qualifying low in Omaha there needs to be 3 cards on the board 8 or lower of differing rank. You then must use 2 of your hole cards to make up the total of 5 un-paired cards 8 or lower. Flushes and straights do not count against your low hand.
