PLO5, also known as 5 Card Omaha, is an entertaining poker game derived from Omaha. This poker variant is a sharp contrast to the hold’em variants; a player is dealt 5 hole cards and 5 community cards are dealt face up.
A PLO5 hand is made up of 5 cards; a player must use two of the hole cards and 3 community cards to make a hand.
In pot-limit 5-card Omaha, the minimum bet is the size of big blind but unlike no-limit Omaha, players can only bet to the size of the pot. The minimum raise amount must be at least equal to the last bet or raise in the round while the maximum raise is determined by the size of the pot.
Where to play PLO5
You can play PLO5 at virtually all mainstream online poker rooms. For example, Poker Stars, 888Poker, PartyPoker, and WilliamHill poker are some of the leading poker rooms that offer 5-card Omaha.
Other poker rooms offering 5-card Omaha include:
- Tiger Gaming Poker
- Bet Online
