This is a discussion on Omaha Hi/Lo within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; Today I played Omaha Hi/Lo for the first time.
Disregard the bets and their sizing, I want someone to explain to me how i didn't win
Ah it looks like you think you should've had the flush but in omaha you have to use 2 of your hole cards.

K 10 A A 5 board nobody had the flush so colors don't matter ...
You have a pair of 8s ..no available low ... he has an A ..... that's triples ..
you should have folded preflop on the flop on the turn at the first oproturnity .. gl

You did the same thing I did the first time I played Omaha, I thought I had a monster, but I was only using one of my hole cards in my mind. I think that is something that happens often to Hold 'em players in their first try. I have frequently seen people chatting that they don't understand why they lost. Of course, nobody at the table ever corrects them in the middle of play. Ha ha.
