I prefer texas holdem because I got used to this format. i have spent a lot of time training myself in this game which means i have more luck playing texas holdem than omaha.

Omaha is a very fun game, but I think hold 'em has proved that people overall enjoy it the best given that most of the cash games and tournaments are played in this format!

Was playing both yesterday. Mindset is so different. After playing few hours of playing Omaha
When I went back to play HE I started folding hands cause I was afraid someone had the nuts LOL
Where as top pair TK or better is usually good in HE
Straight or better is usually good in Omaha

Anyone disagree?

I like Omaha for cash games. and Texas HE for tournaments. Cash games are also fun.

I like Hold em for tournaments play
Omaha I prefer as a cash game.
It’s should a pure redraw game to the river
AAxx is overplayed by those trying Omaha first time from HE

Of course I choose hold'em! Omaha is too subject to variance, although sometimes it can be fun for entertainment!

I only play Texas Holdem, which is also a no limit holdem. I don't like the other games at all.

Thank you very much everyone

:joyman::deal:


Today I noticed that a simple post here in the group asking a simple question yielded a lot of what to say was worth chatting for the attention I just realized that Texas won so congratulations to the Texas players you are always in front of Omaha ... gl

I think Omaha is more difficult, since both you and your opponent have 4 pocket cards, the opening ranges are much wider than in hold'em, you have to count more combinations and a lot of draws, which makes the game very loose.

texas...can't handle the excessive variance in omaha.

i guess omaha is more of a ' gambler's ' game. I prefer to be more in control of what's happening...if possible...lol. If i was an omaha player, i would definitely be in the run it twice brigade. In holdem i only ever run it once.

I like omaha better - big pots, excitement :D But I think hold'em is a smarter and more interesting game, a game of minds ;)

Hello.
I prefer Texas Hold'em. This is the best game for me, and I am not even interested in playing anything else.

I think omaha has higher skill ceiling and really fun to play but for some reason I still like texas more. I think part of it is the fact that you have to fold more "decend" hands in omaha as top pair/two pair is rarely good.

There are so many redraws to the nuts that rarely see a bet - fold at the flop. in Omaha. It’s usually bet -call or bet -raise or reraise on the flop The few times I see checking all around is. dry board

If you play Omaha, the pot-limit, no-limit format is for maniacs)

For HE can play 3-4-5 cards off the board In Omaha have to use exact 3 cards of he board with 2 of your own. Sometimes that can cause some confusion

Hold'em is a detective thriller with an unexpected ending, and Omaha is a crazy action with elements of porn :D
