Work this Omaha Hands Together

Check Regal Poker for Latest Poker News, poker strategy tips and more.
In Hold’em, because you start with only two cards, you have only one combination of two cards. In Omaha, you start with four cards that can create six unique two-card combinations. The best starting hands have all four cards working together. Hands that have three cards working together with one card that doesn’t (often called a dangler) are weaker than ones with all four working in conjunction.

Here are some examples of starting hands that work together:
You have the best two low cards (A,2) with counterfeit protection (4) and the possibility to make a straight — A, 2, 3, 4, 5 — or an ace high flush in spades with the A-9.
This hand has a low draw (A,2) and three high draws (ace high flush, king high flush, and straight possibilities with the A, K; K, 9 or A, 2).
Arguably this is the best starting hand in Omaha/8 since you have the three lowest cards, two flush draws — both ace high, a pair of aces, and a wheel possibility
These cards all work together as any combination of low cards while giving you a straight draw, and if an ace hits the board you will have the best possible low if a low is possible.
