Play now!Most poker players who play Texas Holdem understand that position is of paramount importance. Many poker players who play Omaha poker don’t understand that position is also important in this game.
There are a lot of possibilities in Omaha and because of that fact some people ignore position but that is a mistake.
Omaha is a game where drawing to big hands is a large part of the game. What is sometimes underestimated is the value of position. When you are in position you have the opportunity to analyze what everyone else has done before making your play. That is well known in Texas Holdem but it is also important in Omaha. Because of the many different possibilities in Omaha you can see a lot of strong hands. Omaha is a difficult game to play at times because you want to keep drawing to a great hand. Even when out of position you feel that you can still draw to something good. That is a big problem, especially when playing out of position. There are way too many times in Omaha where players stay in looking for a draw when they should have folded.
