Losing because of glitches in Omaha...
So, I lost to a two pair and a pair because the game thought I had a pair too even though I had a straight. (It was a low straight, but that doesn't change the fact that it was one.)

And just now, I lost to a straight and a two pair because the game thought I had three of a kind, even though I actually had a full house.

I've already taken screenshots of the glitch.

Anyone else having this issue?

Were 3 of those cards from the straight/full house in your hand? Because in Omaha you can only use 2 of the four cards in your hand.

Oh, yikes. Really?

In that case, I've been playing it wrong.

Thanks for the correction. =)

Haha, no problem man. That tricked me up too at first.

Also, unlike Holdem, you MUST use two cards from your hand. You can't play the board or only use one of your cards with 4 on the board.

Thanks, Psi.

I've already unlocked everything through Texas Hold 'Em, but I'd still like to learn how to play Omaha properly.

Do you have any tips you could offer? =)

I can offer a few general tips for Omaha, but I don't know if they will help playing against the AI in this game, as they seem to bet like madmen sometimes.

Position is very important like in Hold'em. Discard weak hands if you're in early position to avoid getting raised and enter the pot with marginal hands in late position if you can get in cheaply.

Generally, try to play high pairs and suited connecters like Holdem, but you really want all 4 cards to have potential to make hands because you typically need to have a very strong hand (often, the best possible hand) to win the pot. You are going to lose the pot most of the time without a MINIMUM of two pair. Straights and flushes are more common in Omaha than in Hold'em. Be careful if you have the low end of a straight. If there are more than two others in the pot, chances are one or both of them has a higher straight (assuming they are good players and aren't just chasing)

3 of a kind in your hand should usually be folded.

Usually avoid middle pairs/cards (especaially in early position or if there was a raise before you) as they are often beaten by the river unless you happen to get lucky and hit your set.

7789 for example, has straight potential or 3 of a kind, but you may get yourself in a lot of trouble if you're up against someone holding something like 10JQK who is hitting a higher straight. If the 89 are suited, the hand is better, but, you also have to consider anoher player potentially having a higher flush (of course, if your straight flush hits, you want that!)

Omaha, huh?
Okay a almost complete street was there. 2 cards where missing. Well i had then so i had a street. But what did the game do? 1 pair. Well done.

Read this thread again. Some people said you JUST CAN USE 2 CARDS OF 4 IN YOUR HAND
