Here they are arranged in order, best to worst:

A7KK, (playable from all positions - a very strong starting hand, better than roughly 96% of starting hands)

A6QT, (top quarter hand)
456Q, (top quarter hand)

245K, (top third hand)
2569, (top third hand)

QQ25, (top two fifths hand)

3578, (poor)
J632, (poor)
QT9K, (poor)

Just my opinion.

Hi Buzz,

Is there somewhere I can see or generate a full list of hands and how they rank please?

Dynasty has answered your question. That list still works to get a general idea of the worth of an Omaha-8 starting hand.

I made those assessments back in May of 2009, and, as I recall, off the top of my head, but I think I may have double checked my assessments using the list Dynasty has linked.

Another way to get Omaha-8 hand ratings, and one that is probably better for short handed games, is just go to
http://www.propokertools.com/simulations?g=o8, type in the hand to be rated, and click "rate."

Try it.
