This is a discussion on pot limit omaha straight within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; I am a no-limet holdem player. Today I decide to play some microstakes pot limit omaha hands. The next thing happens to me:
You need to use 2 cards of the 4 you in your hand.

re: Poker & pot limit omaha straight
In no limit holdem you can use 1 or even zero of the cards you hold, but in pl omaha you need to use exactly two, now it is clear to me why I didn't had a straight, thankyou!

Long time ago when i first started playing omaha i made the same mistake
Had the A of hearts on my hand and no other hearts, 4 card flush on board and i
was all in against 2 others. was very surprised when i didnt won the pot
ALWAYS use 2 of your own card to make a hand, so suited and connocted cards
are very valueable in omaha.
A good advice would be to watch some videos on youtube as well to get a hold
of some basic strategies
