// Pot Limit Omaha
Pot Limit Omaha, or PLO as you’ll mostly see it called, is one of the most exciting poker variants there is, with the four cards you get dealt meaning you almost always have a hand with a chance.
It’s the favourite game of many of the world’s best players, and recent high-profile challenge matches have seen $millions won and lost. HighStakes offer PLO as standard, of course, with cash games and tournament formats to suit every bankroll.
The other big rule you need to know before getting started is that betting is limited to pot-sized bets (hence the name Pot Limit Omaha!)
Players get dealt four cards instead of two.
Players MUST use exactly two of their hole cards to make a hand.
Betting is limited to maximum pot-sized bets.
Hand rankings are the same as No Limit Hold’em.
For those who have never played PLO before, don’t be surprised when you get dealt four cards (instead of the two in the popular No Limit Hold’em format you’ve likely seen on TV).
However, just like Hold’em, you’ll recognize the flop, turn and river of the community cards, but you MUST use two of your four hole-cards, along with three from the community cards, to make your best five-card hand. The hand rankings are the same.
