More about Poker Omaha

The game begins

Each game uses a complete deck of cards, i.e., 52 cards. The value of the ACE depends on its position in the series, being the lowest number in Ace-2-3-4-5 or the highest in the combination 10-J-Q-K-Ace.

The Gaming Directors establish the duration and limits of the game, if any.

Games begin with a minimum of four players who are distributed around the table.

The Casino establishes the initial amount of money or Stack with which the players participate in the game and the amount of rebuys, it also establishes the minimum quantity for a new player to join the game. The player is forced to make a rebuy when the amount of remaining chips is less than the minimum required.

The croupier then places a marker or button in front of the player to the right of the player who bets first and begins the game.

Betting turn

Una vez barajados y realizado el corte de los naipes, todos los participantes harán una apuesta inicial de “ante” que será siempre la mitad del mínimo de la mesa.

Hay distintas modalidades:

. "Split limit" se jugará en los dos primeros intervalos de apuestas con el límite más bajo y en los siguientes, con el más alto.
. "Bote con límite" la apuesta estará limitada por el bote.
. "Bote sin límite" no encontraremos límite para la apuesta máxima no pudiendo ser el mínimo menor al autorizado y expuesto visiblemente en la mesa.

En todo momento las cartas deberán estar a la vista del crupier y del resto de los jugadores. Los participantes no podrán tocar sus naipes hasta que no haya terminado el reparto.

Al llegar el turno de apuestas el jugador puede:

1. Retirarse y salir del juego diciendo claramente "no voy” y poniendo sus naipes tapados sobre la mesa, que serán retirados por el crupier sin que sean vistos por el resto de los participantes.
2. Pasar diciendo "paso” cuando al llegar su turno decida no apostar. En el caso de que algún otro participante realice un envite, el jugador en paso deberá cubrir o subir la apuesta si quiere seguir jugando.
3. Cubrir o igualar la apuesta colocando en el Pot la misma cantidad que los demás jugadores.
4. Subir la apuesta de cualquier otro jugador colocando en el Pot las fichas suficientes para hacerlo.

Cada vez que termina un turno de apuestas, el crupier separará una carta del mazo colocándola debajo del Pot. Una vez acabada la cuarta ronda de apuestas, los jugadores descubrirán sus naipes comenzando por aquel que realice la última apuesta más alta, pagándose el Pot a la mejor combinación o repartiéndose entre los distintos jugadores con igual combinación ganadora en proporción a sus respectivos restos.

Winning combinations

. FOUR OF A KIND 20-1. Four cards with the same rank or number and one with a different rank or number.

A new player cannot join the game if the vacant position obliges them to possess the “mark” or open the betting.

It is the responsibility of the Inspector or the leader of the match to ensure the correct development of the game, and to resolve any conflict in accordance with the legal framework of the Gambling Regulations of the Autonomous Region of Madrid. Their decisions will be mandatory and binding for everybody.
