5-Card Omaha and Courchevel Set To Debut on Pokerstars This WeekPublished on March 21st, 2013 7:24 pm EST
As part of their Omaha Week (March 25-31) promotion, Pokerstars has revealed that they will soon be introducing two new Omaha variations to their list of game offerings.
The first new game is simply called "5-card Omaha". In a typical Omaha game, players get dealt four cards. A player must use two cards from their hand as well as three from the board in order to make the best possible hand.
In "5-card Omaha", players will be dealt five cards instead of four. The same rules will apply, in that players will have to use two cards from their hand and three from the board.
The second new game that is being offered by Pokerstars is called "Courchevel".
"Courchevel" is another variant of the traditional Omaha game. In "Courchevel", the first flop card is exposed prior to the first round of betting. In addition, five cards are dealt to each player. As with a traditional Omaha game, each player must use two cards from their hand and three cards from the board in order to make a hand.
