Math for Omaha: Some Implications
A couple conclusions from the Math for Omaha percentages table:
- Having a backup low card makes your hand MUCH more powerful (i.e. having A24 instead of just A2).
- Having just 2 low cards (like A2) is a long shot to come thru for you. It only hits 24% of the time, and even then you only get half the pot. Think of it more like a drawing hand.
- There is a big inflection point on whether you get 2 low cards on the flop, or 1 low card. Low oriented hands lose MUCH of their value when 2 high cards flop. High oriented hands lose much of their value when 2 low cards flop.
- It is reasonably likely that someone has has your 2-card coupling (i.e You have AK on a QJT board, and over a third of the time someone else is dealt it too).
