The player with the best five-card hand for high wins half the pot,
and the player with the best hand for low wins the other half. In Omaha, players must use two
and only two of their four hole cards in combination with three cards from the board. In the
event of identical hands, the high and low shares of the pot will be equally divided between
the players with the best hands. In the event that no hand qualifies for low, the best hand(s)
for high wins the pot.
For a five card hand to qualify for low, it cannot include cards higher than 8 or contain
any pairs. Aces can be used for both high and low. When comparing low hands, the winner is the
hand with the lowest high card, thus 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 is better than Ace, 2, 3, 4, 8. The best
possible low hand is Ace, 2, 3, 4, 5.
