Hold’em/Omaha Games

PokerStars offers ‘Hold’em/Omaha’ games which are a rotation of two games:

Playing Hold’em/Omaha

Hold’em/Omaha is played as one ‘round’ of each of its component games. It begins with No Limit Hold’em then switches to Pot Limit Omaha, playing each in rotation. A ‘round’ can be either six or nine hands, depending on the number of seats at the table. You can tell which game is being dealt by looking at the top border of the table window. Hold’em/Omaha tables are a great way to bring variety to your poker play without having to switch tables.

If you are not familiar with the particular rules of each of these games, please visit the pages for each by clicking the links above.

We also offer scheduled multi-table tournaments and Sit & Go’s in this mixed game format, which can easily be located using the ‘Hold’em/Omaha’ filters in their respective lobbies. In some cases, the game will be played as a mix of Pot Limit Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha. Please check the tournament lobby for details.
