  1. Noun

    A poker variation in which players receive 4 downcards that may be used individually and 5 face-up cards that are shared among all players. Players combine exactly 2 of their personal cards with exactly 3 of the shared cards to make the highest 5-card hand according to standard hand rankings.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: This game is typically played using two blinds rather than an ante, including a Big Blind equal to the lower portion of the betting limits and a Small Blind typically equal to half of that amount.

    EXAMPLE: "I first learned poker by playing Texas Hold'em, but after I tried Omaha I really started to like it a lot. Omaha is one of my favorite games."
