I enjoy playing omaha cash games from time to time, though cash games can get a bit insane. With 4 cards, most hands won't be super crushed by any other hand...so often in live omaha games I've seen there are guys that raise like crazy with almost anything. Some of the crazy players are better than others, I don't play in those games as I don't have the bankroll...and after seeing it I don't think I can handle the swings involved.
Omaha is much more fun to play than hold'em and even more like Omaha Hi-Lo
From the first time you find it strange this is a game)
but then, when you learn something, it will definitely be interesting.
There is no other fate than that which we choose ourselves!
Holdem will always be my favorite game but I also like omaha because it offers the possibility to see more flops than Holdem, with a chance for improvement and if the position is important in Holdem, it is really important in Omaha.
Omaha is by far more fun then NL Texas holdem . check out The Big O . rules are as follows. Pot limit, 5 cards in the hole, must play two cards at show down . hold on to your cowboy hats Big O is a wild ride !
I would not argue that it is better and what is worse, because in poker there are so many varieties and so many millions of people playing this beautiful game that everyone has their own opinion about this or that variety !!! but for me personally, hold'em is better !!!!
Saying that one game is better than the other is subjective. But yes, you generally get more action in Omaha thanks to the 4 hole cards you receieve as oppossed to 2 hole cards you get in Texas Holdem. You also generally get a crazy number of outs when you're in a draw in Omaha, and the nuts you had in the flop can, more often than not, become worthless in the turn and river.
There is definitely more skill involved in NL Holdem.
For cash games, I prefer PLO. I can make as much money in 1 session of PLO as I can in 2-3 months of 1/3 NLHE (2/5 games are rarely spread). I also think itís much more fun to play. That being said, I prefer NLHE in tourney play.
I certainly know how to play Omaha-purely technically, but in terms of the level of the game I am a very weak player. I really want to learn all the subtleties of the game, also in Texas poker. But I wonít force myself to start playing and learn Omaha. The Texas type of poker interferes. I donít want to start everything from the beginning and spend many months studying and improving the game of Omaha)))) and I play strongly in Texas poker and went and played. I must find the strength to force myself to do this Omaha. This is a very good and interesting game with its own features. I donít know why it is not so popular and is inferior to Texas in scale. It is definitely not worse, but, unfortunately, not so popular and advertised.
I love playing Omaha a lot
Keeps you involved in the game
But its a lottery type game more like BINGO
Its another ball game altogether
No comparison to holdem
Interesting view. Lots of top players in other pokerforums think, that Omaha requires more skill and has less variance than holdem. I enjoy holdem but somethimes it feels very Bingo like, especially in low stack games.
I like Omaha, but no-limit hold'em is much more popular and therefore a lot more of the game is in this game! besides, in my opinion, hold'em is much easier to learn because there is a lot more material freely available than for Omaha
I prefer Omaha in cash games but not tourneys.
Omaha requires more position bets, variance is high but your almost guaranteed action on any hand. Oh, the ability to fold second and 3rd best can be helpful.
I love holdem, for me it is the best. I have never played omaha but I have seen it because some of my friends have played and I've also seen it on internet and I haven't layed it but I guess I prefer holdem and also is the most popular poker game and also I guess, I am not really sure but you can earn more money playing holdem than omaha.
I think it is depends, some people could like holdem and some people could like omaha I guess both are great because if they wouldn't people would not play them.
Which game do you like better?
I love Omaha 4 cards are better than 2!
I like Hold'em better, Omaha is a great game but, the action is slower and there is less room to make as many plays as you can in hold'em. I do like the Omaha pot sizes, with the extra hole cards, there are normally more people in any given pot. What I don't like is that you have ro use two hole cards to make your hand. It's funny how people have been saying for years that Omaha is going to replace Hold'em as the most popular game, but there are a lot of games that have had this same hype yet Hold'em remains the most popular year after year after year. There is a lot to be said about this kind of of dominance. For me, Hold'em will always be number one...as long as it stays pure... I don't care for this 6+ crap either. I also prefer Stud 7 over Omaha.
