Omaha Week starts today
This week is dedicated to Omaha. Consider it a sponsorship of sorts: that the next seven days are set aside for four-card carnage, multi-street potting and re-potting with enormous draws versus made hands.
Just click on 'Omaha' in the PokerStars lobby and you'll see the option for '5 Card Omaha' listed in case you want to try out the new variants.
