1. The Dealer
One player is designated as the dealer who will act last during the betting rounds. A “Button” is used to identify the dealer which is rotated to the left after each hand. Blind bets are posted to generate a starting pot same as in Texas Hold’em.
2. The Start
The game is started by posting “Blinds” the big blind and the small blind .The participant seated on the left side of the participant with the dealer button puts in a small blind with half the of the minimum amount that can be bet. The participant seated on the left side of the small blind puts in a big blind that is as much as the minimum amount that can be bet which happens to be $3 in this particular game.
3. The Opening
Soon after the blinds every player is given 4 face down cards. The participant that put in small blind gets the card first and the person to get the card last is the player at the dealer button . The primary round of betting starts with the participant on the left side of the big blind to either “Call” the bet, or “raise” the bet or fold the hand.
4. The Flop
Three cards are now laid face up on the table. This is called “Flop.” These cards are called community cards and are used by all the players. Then the first player to the left side of the dealer begins a round of betting. Three dollars is the minimum bet for this round..
5. The Turn
After the round of betting is complete; the first card in the stack is burnt by the dealer and a fourth community card is put on the table. This fourth card is called “Turn.” After the turn, the minimum bet now is six dollars and betting starts with the first player on the left of the dealer button that is still in the game.
6. The River
After the betting round for the turn is done,, the dealer then burns the first card in the stack and puts down the fifth card which is the final community card.. this last community card to be laid down is called the “river,” Then begins the final round of betting.
To reach the final outcome and a clear winner, participants MUST use the two pocket cards and three
cards from the community cards to form a five card hand the highest combination wins. In some cases two players will tie which happens quite often in Omaha Hi/Lo. In which case the pot will be split by the remaining players.
