Omaha High-Low is an action game, but only about 15% of hands dealt are playable. Bill Boston, author and poker player, states that only 662 out of 5,278 hands are worthwhile to be played. Of those, 621 have at least one ace. Remember, you only have to pay twice to play every 10 hands at the table: the big and little blinds. That means 80% of the time you get a free look at 4 cards. All four of your hole cards need to “work together.” That means they are connectors, or even better when suited, and, best of all, have high-low scoop potential. Remember, there is always a high winner and a low less than 50% of the time. Additionally, low hands split about 20% of the time (get quartered). Summing it up: plan to fold often and think carefully about hand selection. Tight players usually win at Omaha and loose ones don’t.
