This is a discussion on What is Low in Omaha High/Low? within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; I have tried Omaha for the first time. Could anyone explain what is Lo? Often there is 3,2,A.

Hi! A low hand must comply with the "8 or lower" rule: all five cards in it must be no older than 8. a low hand cannot contain a pair or three, and straights and flushes are not counted. When determining the low, the lowest card is considered an ACE. The lower the cards in the low, the better the hand. To determine the winning low, hands are compared starting from the highest card.

its hi lo omaha they do split pots.. one person will win for having the highest hand and one person will win for having the lowest hand like if you have a low straight like A 2 3 4 5 you thats the best hand you can get in lo
The five different lowest cards of which two must be in your hand and 3 of the 5 cards on the table. When trying for lo, the five different cards considered must be no higher than the 8. Ace is considered a 1, the lowest number.
If there are not three separate cards on the table that are 8 or lower, there is no lo for the whole table.
If you do not have at least 2 cards that are an 8 or lower, there is no way you can have a lo.
You win half the pot if you have what is considered lo.
