Omaha Quiz Answers:

1) C. In Omaha, you must use two and only two of your starting cards along with 3 community cards on the board.
2) B. The more cards you are dealt, the more selective you need to be with your starting hand requirements. It is important that all of your cards are coordinated and work together so they have a chance of improving on the flop.
3) B. To qualify for a low hand a player needs a hand of 5 cards that are 8 or lower. The worst low hand is 8 7 6 5 4. The best low hand is 5 4 3 2 A. (also called a wheel).
4) C. With only Ace –deuce as your low cards one or both of them will be counterfeited one third of the time. This is one of the reasons why is it unwise to automatically raise with A-2 if you hold no other low cards in you hand.
5) A. Double suited A-2 A-3 is one of the best starting hands for Omaha 8. You have a big pair toward the high and plus two different chances for the nut flush. You also have an excellent possibility for the nut low with counterfeit protection.
Pocket Aces and Kings in Omaha are overrated and will not win the pot without improvement. 6-7-8-9 looks better than it is.
If you make a straight, you will probably get beaten by a higher straight.
6) A. You should fold. With 3 suited cards on the board, you can be pretty sure that you are up against a flush. Don’t waste money with the straight. Omaha Quiz answers 7 - 10 follow.
7) C. Fold. If there are 3 low cards on the board, you are drawing to half a pot. It is not profitable to continue with a drawing hand.
8) B. If you tie with one player for low, you will get a quarter of the pot. You have to split low half of the pot with the other player. It is known as getting quartered and it will cost you money. If three players tie for low, you will only get a 1/16 of the pot.
9) B. Before the flop, your odds of making a low hand is 49%. If the flop contains 2 low cards your odds improve to 70% but if the flop has only 1 low card, the odds fall to 24%.
10) C. Scooping the pot means to win the whole pot. Novice players are intent on winning half the pot but that is not the goal if you want to make money.
For example, if 5 players put  $80 into the pot,  there is $400. If you split the pot, you will get $200 minus your $80 for a profit of $120. If you scoop the pot you get $400 minus your $80 for a profit of $320. This should be your ultimate goal when playing Omaha high-low.
