PLO-5 is a variant version of Omaha Poker. Each player is dealt five private hole cards which can only be used by that player. Then, five community cards are dealt on the board face-up. In Omaha games, players use any three of the community cards together with any two of their hole cards to make the best five-card poker hand.
In Pot Limit poker, you play with Pot Limit rules. This means that the maximum bet depends on the size of the pot itself. Unlike No Limit variants you won’t always have the possibility to go ‘All-In’ in any given hand.
PLO-5 is a variation on Omaha style Hold’em Poker where instead of four hole cards, you are dealt five. You still will only use two cards from your hand and three from the community cards however!
