What you do is get four cards.
Doesn't matter much what they are because
nobody really looks at them anyway. Next, they put three cards on the board.
It doesn't matter what they are because nobody really pays any attention to the flop either.
Then one more card for the turn and another one for the river. Same betting
scenario as before. Doesn't really matter much what they are, except, for a few of the
players that may have "cheated" and looked at their hole cards. These players may now
fold if they have absolutely no outs. (Mostly bad sports.)
Now, at the showdown, everybody turns over their cards and helps the dealer figure out who has the best hand.
You MUST play two cards out of your hand so this usually takes a while and the winning hand
is usually found out after a little bit of searching by all of the players and a partially confused dealer.
The dealer now pushes the pot to the wrong player and everybody yells at him and he smiles glibly
and says, "Oh yeah, sorry" and then sends it in the right direction. Then, after all of that
excitement dies down, everybody lets out a collective sigh of relief and gets ready to wind
up and do it all over again.

Fun game.

I'm sitting here wondering what witty resounder I can offer, but your obtuse yet semi inaccurate perception of the game defies ineffectual rebutals.

Where and when do you play.......

Actually Omaha is really fun because it requires discipline and understanding the math of the game. It is a HUGE drawing game much more so than Hold 'Em. It's fun to have a hand with 20+ outs and these massive wrap straight draws.

It's funny because I usually consider 2 pr to be a big hand in Hold 'Em, but routinely throw it away in Omaha. Too bad you don't appreciate the beauty of the game, but I can understand -- it can be frustrating at times.
