Pot Limit Omaha (PLO) is one of the most popular derivatives of Unibet online wedden poker found in the world today. The most popular version of the game is played with four-cards, and this is the most commonly available form of PLO available on the Internet. More localised versions of five and six card PLO can be found in the brick and mortar world, where a more wild and variance filled game of poker is on the menu.

PLO is popular because it is a game that creates action. Each time you add another card to your selection of starting hands you increase the likelihood that you will hit part of the board, thus widening the possibility you will make a hand. This means there are more players chasing draws and playing a range of value hands from weak to the nuts. Due to the wild nature of PLO, it’s known as a game where the nuts are often needed to take the pot.

Players have to make the best five-card hand by using two hole cards and three community cards. The betting format is exactly the same as No-Limit Hold’em (NLHE) with a pre flop period, flop, turn and river.

There is also a derivative of PLO known as Hi-Lo 8-or-better. This format affords you two ways to win the pot. You can win by having the best high hand, but you can also win by having the best low hand. The game of PLO Hi-Lo 8-or-better is one where there are a lot of split pots as players draw for the same type of hands. When you win both the high and the low hands, this is known as scooping the pot.
