In hold'em, players are dealt two down cards as their personal hand (holecards), followed by a betting round. Three board cards are flipped at the same time (called the flop), and a round of betting begins. The following two board cards are flipped one by one, with a round of betting in between. The board cards are communal cards, and any five-card combination from the board and hole cards can be used by a player.

Pot Limit Omaha is similar to Texas Hold'em, except that instead of two cards, players are dealt four. Unlike Texas Hold'em, where you may construct the greatest hand with just one or none at all from your hole cards, Pot Limit Omaha mandates you to play two cards from your stack at showdown. If there are four clubs on the board, for example, possessing the ace of clubs in your hand earns you a flush in Hold'em, irrespective of what your other card is. In Pot Limit Omaha, you ought to have two clubs in your hand to get a flush.

The aim of the online poker game is to succeed the pot by forming the maximum ranked five-card Poker hand or have all the other Players give up the pot to you by flopping to your Bet (bluffing). Now, the only difference between Hold’em and Omaha is that in hold’em, the player is dealt with 2-hole cards and in Omaha, the player is dealt with 4-hole cards.
