Omaha Poker has a large array of different combinations of starting hands. Actually there are 5,277 four card combinations that can be dealt with a 52 card deck, and that isn't even counting the different combinations of suited cards. This basically lays down a law that either you are dealt a playable hand, or one that isn't, clear as black/white. As long as you make sure that you are using all four cards to their maximum value in the starting hand, as in if they are connecting cards (i.e. KQJT) then you will do
alright. If they are suited then that is going to help as well.
So we have compiled a short list of the top 14 starting hands. Of course they all have aces in them.
So in summary remember that a starting hands that have trips in them (i.e. AAA7) are rubbish as you are losing value on your hand as you are very unlikely to hit. That is the same as KQ45, yeah you may hit but if you are going to be drawing towards a better hand then you want to have four power cards, not just two.
