OMAHA HI/LOW SPLIT
Uses a standard, 52-card deck, generally without the Joker. At showdown time, the Low hand, providing it is an “Eight-Or-Better”, will split the pot with the High hand. Should there be no Player holding an “8 or Better to qualify”, the entire pot is awarded to the best-exposed High hand. As in Omaha Hi, Players must use two of their personal four cards along with three of the common five to form a traditional Poker hand, High and/or Low. They may use a different set of two cards to form each hand. It is possible for one player to have the best High and the best Low hands.
TEXAS HOLD-EM

Players form two hands, a two-card and a five-card hand with the five-card hand being HIGHER in value than the two-card hand. Traditional Poker rankings are used.When Players’ hands are compared to the Designated Player’s hands, both hands must be of higher ranking to win.
