High - Low Games

Both Omaha and Seven Card Stud have a variant where the pot is split. A Low hand and a High hand can win half each, or if no Low hand qualifies then the high hand wins it all.

For a hand to qualify as low it must consist of five cards of different values, with no card having a value greater than eight. Flushes and straight aren't counted against you when evaluating a Low hand. Ace's can be high and low.

The best low hand is 5-4-3-2-A and the worst is 8-7-6-5-4. Where two low hands have several of their lowest cards matched in value, then the hand with the lowest unmatched card is the better. For example 6-4-3-2-A is better than 7-4-3-2-A.

In Omaha Hi-Low 'Hole' cards can be shared between High and Low hands or you can use different holes cards in each hand. You can only use two of your Hole cards in any one hand though, as in standard Omaha
