Now that you know what to do on the flop,
let's talk a little about what to do after the flop:
Your actions on the turn will vary a lot depending on what actions you took previously on the flop (refer to part 2 of the guide). On the turn you need to be especially careful.
If the board hasn't paired, flushed or made a straight:
1. If the board hasn't really changed and if I have put in a large bet earlier then I will generally make another big bet to try and scare my opponent out of the pot. The thinking is that if he had already made trips then he would have re-raised for something on the flop.
2. If someone raised on the flop, to which I had called (when I am in position, i.e. on the button) but now on the turn it is checked around to me then I would give it a raise to try and steal the pot. However, I will only do this if I have at least a few good outs, just in case someone does call! Otherwise I will just check it.
3. If someone bets at me again for anything above 3 quarters of the pot and if I am not holding trips then I will generally fold. This kind of a bet will signify that the player is holding trips.
If the board has paired, flushed or made a straight draw:
1. If I am holding the nuts, I will generally push at this point if I had bet before. I will make a good sized bet to try and extract maximum value out of my made hand. I will generally bet at this stage and then on the river if I still have the nuts then I will check it to my opponent to try and induce a big bluff.
2. If someone bets before me whilst I am holding the nuts then I will almost always wait a few seconds and flat call. I will try and give the impression that I am thinking about what to do. This is the ideal situation as it can be very lucrative later on if your opponent tries to bluff again.
3. If I am not holding the nut hand I will ALWAYS urge on the side of caution. This is where you can lose a lot of money if someone check-raises to you. If someone calls a big bet from you on the flop and then checks to you when a nut hand comes then be careful. It is the same situation if they make a really small bet. Chances are that they hold a horrendous
There are not too many different things at this point that you need to worry about in a game of Omaha. But you need to remember that what you represent at this point is where you will make your money on the river, just like when you are representing a hand on the flop.
careful, but make sure not to look weak otherwise people
will just take your money off of you!
