 High Stakes PL Omaha Discussion of 2/4 and above pot-limit Omaha poker

 10-16-2017, 12:46 PM #1 wizard#27 banned   Join Date: Oct 2017 Posts: 13 letter omaha Hi guys, I'm inventing a game loosely based on omaha that uses 4-suited letters instead of cards. Due to word draws being limited/unpredictable, I chose board structure 2 2 2, words effectively replace pairs, but 4oak letters trump most words, trips are weak but beat 4-letter words, flushes need to be words and straights are effectively the same as in omaha. Calculating the odds of F,T&R for words is obviously an enourmous task, but flushes!words, trips and 4oak are easy, what I need help with is straights. Assume it uses a 936-letter deck with even distribution. What would be the odds of hitting a 5-letter straight on T+R with pure, 1G, 3withdangler hands assuming 2 cards are needed I'm assuming it's a lot less likely to occur, so what would the effect be of needing 3 letters from your hand instead, would that be overkill? Which do you think would play better in the game, or be more likely to occur, 6-letter straights with 3 cards/5-letter straights with 2 cards? I currently have them ranked above 6-letter words but unsure how it will play. Hoping a greater wizard than I can save me some time on this. Last edited by wizard#27; 10-16-2017 at 01:15 PM.

But if you do, take into consideration that the letters will likely be distributed more akin to scrabble (but not as extreme), so use that as the template. Increasing the #of tiles is fine.

I think 6-card straights may be impractical, but 5-card straights are a viable option here. I gave certain cards a boost to make straight-draws a bit more consistent, but otherwise it's by letter distribution in english. Thoughts? (btw I posted a letter to myself containing the fundementals of the game and possible alterations, it arrived this morning) Last edited by wizard#27; 10-16-2017 at 02:33 PM.
