....it is a more exciting game than hold'em for many reasons.
Firstly with being dealt 4 cards there are so many more permutations and as such unlike in hold'em you can't really be all-in preflop with only a 20% chance of winning like often happens with pair versus overpair in NLHE which means in some ways it can be a more level 'playing field' giving even the weakest players more of a chance.
Secondly, with the above being the case it is quite important to choose the correct starting cards from the table position in which you are situated at that time. It is also important to take into consideration the omaha variant in which you are playing as starting hands differ in hi-lo from those of PLO. And again if the game is no-limit this also has to be taken into account.
Thirdly, it is easy to tilt people who believe you are playing badly, not knowing that value and draws are very much different in omaha from those in NLHE.
Fourthly, I really enjoy playing against the omaha players as I sense the fear the regulars have when at my table. Newbies can, sometimes, take a while to succumb (he says modestly).
Fifthly, with omaha being quite new to the 888 platform, there is quite a high percentage of inexperienced players and even newbies to the game compared to other sites. Obviously in a more random game like omaha this can lead to very bad calls that end up winning, but if you're getting your chips in good, longterm you will profit from what are usually just cannon fodder
Sixthly, learning and improving in these games isn't going to be as expensive for half decent players.
And seventhly because when I cash, I disproportionately finish in first place. Who wouldn't enjoy that?
And those are most of the reason omaha is now my fav game.
