OK. By now, I'm assuming you've learned how Omaha works, maybe even know a bit about starting hand selection and reading the board. This article is going to try and provide you with an introduction to some of the costly traps that Omaha has for the unwary.

1) Dirty Outs.

Omaha, as I have probably said before, is a game of draws. It's important to know all of your outs (for example, a runner runner flush hits about 3% of the time, so there might be a little more value in your hand than you were thought). However, it is more important to know which of your outs are dirty. Dirty outs are cards that may help an opponent more than they help you.

There's an old proverb that says when God wants to curse a man, he gives the man everything he ever desired. Omaha feels like that sometimes. For example a card that gives you a straight makes a flush for someone else or gives you a flush and your opponent a full house, then you could well be in a world of hurt. Be careful that when you count a card as an out that it will actually help you more than your opponents.
