What is Omaholic?

The format of the events is in the title of the series, Omaholic, but what is that?  Omaholic is an Omaha variant that has a unique betting structure, which starts as Pot Limit in the pre-flop stage, but changes to being no limit post-flop. All of the tournaments in the Omaholic Series use this betting structure format.

Oh yeah, so what’s Omaha then, I hear you say?

And What is Omaha?

Omaha is a poker variant, which differs from Hold’em in that players receive four cards (or five in some versions of Omaha poker) instead of two. The betting streets are the same as in Hold’em with the initial deal, the flop, turn and finally river, however there is one crucial difference. While in Hold’em players can use any five card combination from their hole and the board to make their best five card poker hand, in Omaha, players must use exactly two of their hole cards and three board cards to construct their best poker hand.

Omaha is most commonly played as a pot limit game and many people know it simply as PLO (Pot Limit Omaha), however it can also be played with limit or no limit betting rules. Pot limit means that the maximum one can raise is the size of the current pot.
