Four hole cards gives six different two card combinations (abcd gives ab, ac, ad, bc, bd, and cd), so the better these six combinations are, and the less repetitions there are, the better your Omaha hand is. Taking trips as an example, holding K-K-K-5, your six possible hands are KK, KK, K5, KK, K5, and, K5. This leaves you playing only two hands, KK and K5. Compare this to A-K-K-5, which gives you AK, AK, A5, KK, K5, and K5, four different hands.

At this basic level, it is best to think only of your game and not focus on others’ cards or their reactions, let alone bluffing, in order to get a good grasp of the essentials of the game. Strategy will come later.
