Omaha Hi/Lo 8 - How to Play
Similar to Hold 'Em, however each player is dealt four hold cards face down. Five community cards are then dealt face up in the center of the table (as in Hold 'Em) to be used by all players. Players must use exactly two cards from their four personal cards and three community cards to make the best five-card poker hand. The best high hand and the best low hand, using a qualifier of eight or better, split the pot. If no one has an eight or better for low, the high hand wins the entire pot.
Players use one combination of cards to make a high hand and the same or another combination to make a low hand, as long as each hand uses exactly two personal cards and three community cards. Betting rounds are the same as in Hold 'Em. Ace can be used as High or Low. The best possible low is A-2-3-4-5 (wheel). No wrap around straights.
