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
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 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
