Players form a hand by having cards which have the same ranking, suit or are able to form a sequence. For example, a player can create a pair if they have a set of 5, 5, 7, 2, K cards.

Omaha and Texas Hold’em

To anyone familiar with Bitcoin Texas Hold’em, they should be able to follow the variant rule of Omaha poker used in the game. In Texas Hold’em poker, each player has two cards. They use the cards with the five community cards on the table to form a hand. They could use either one of the cards they have or both of them.

In Bitcoin Omaha poker, a player has four cards instead of two. Players also use five community cards to form a hand. Experienced Texas Hold’em poker players might think the four cards are going to make the game easy. However, there are other rules used to make this game more challenging.

Bitcoin players must only use two of the four cards they have to form a hand. These two cards are called their ‘hole cards’. Players can only play three of the community cards only as well. The reason this is challenging is due to the limits of using only two cards in a player’s hand and three community cards in Omaha poker variant.

For example, a player might have an A of heart, 5 of spades, 10 of clubs and a 2 of diamond. The community cards on the other hand have a set of A of clubs, 7 of clubs, 3 of clubs, 9 of clubs and a K of hearts. If the player is using the Texas Hold’em rule, they could form a ‘flush’ hand with the 5, A, 7, 3 and 9. However, Omaha poker rules require players to use only three cards from the community set. This means, they need another card with a club suit in their hand to form a flush.

Experienced Texas Hold’em players and new bettors are sure to be on equal terms when they play Omaha poker using Bitcoin.
