Pot Limit Omaha

Pot Limit Omaha (PLO) poker rules are similar to Hold’em.

Here’s the breakdown of the most important things you need to know about PLO:

  • The game is played with four hole cards instead of two
  • Players must always use exactly two of their hole cards to make a hand (unlike NO Limit HoldE’m where you can use one or even none)
  • Omaha is played in pot-limit format, which means the size of the pot determines the maximum size of the bet
  • PLO uses the same poker hand rankingsas No-Limit Texas Hold’em

The basic rules as they are the same as in Hold’em, i.e:

  • The game is played with the small and the big blind
  • It’s a community card game with the flop, turn, and river
  • The best hand at the showdown wins the pot; in the event of a tie, the pot is split equally among the players
