Omaha is Game of Illusions Almost every hand in Omaha, especially high-low split, looks like it has great possibilities. Everyone envisions a winner.  Of course, that’s not true.  There are over 5,000 combination of cards in every hand dealt.  You need patience and discipline to wait for good starting hands.All four hole cards need to work together.  If that doesn’t happen, be prepared to fold. Omaha provides six times as many combinations at each street as Hold ‘em.  If you enter the hand, think about what your dream flop would be (for either high or low) and don’t chase cards if the flop doesn’t fit; fold.  Look at your hand carefully; everything changes with each card turned.  Staying in is easy, folding takes skill.
