Omaha Poker Rules

Omaha is a variation of Holdem played with 4 hole cards instead of 2. At showdown, the best 5-card hand using 2 (and only two) of your hole cards and 3 cards from the board wins.  In Omaha you can't use more than 3 cards from the board.  Players are dealt 4 cards at the beginning.  Just like Texas Holdem, there is a small blind, a big blind, and a round of betting before the flop.
