Poker Beginners Guide: Best Low Hand Test (1)

In this section your task is to identify your best low Omaha hand.

  Hole Cards     Board Cards  
       

Here you have made the best low, a wheel: 5-4-3-2-A. Note that you are using the Deuce and Four from your hand, not the Ace. Your wheel is then completed by the Ace, Trey and Five from the board. (Of course, your high hand here would be a Five-high straight.)

  Hole Cards     Board Cards  
       

This is a tricky one. With so many low cards in your hand, it looks like you should have a very good low here. In fact it is only an Eight-low: 8-5-4-2-A. The problem here is that both the Ace, Four and Five from your hand are all duplicated on the board, so you still have to use the Eight from the board to complete your low hand.
