Let’s talk about what the best Omaha starting
hands are. Now, an Omaha hand is four cards–four starting cards–which give you, when you think
about it, six different combinations. Six different Texas Hold ‘Em hands. So, let’s
look at this. The very best hand that you can get is ace, ace, king, king, double suited.
What does that mean? I’ve got a pair of aces, I’ve got a pair of kings. I’ve got ace king
suited twice. This gives me a lot of potential to catch a draw that will be a great draw
to win the hand. You definitely want to play this hand strong. Now, very close to the hand
I just showed you, is this hand, which is ace jack suited, ace ten suited. You have
a pair of aces, and you have the suited potential, and you have a straight draw. Now, going down
the line real quickly, another good hand to look for is ace, ace, queen, queen, double
suited. King, king, queen, queen, double suited. A pair of queens and a pair of jacks, double
suited. And then finally two jacks, two tens, double suited.
