Omaha Happy hours will also run between 25-31 March for one hour periods at 0400, 1000, 1600 and 2200 Hours where poker players can win 50% more VPP’s and FPP’s. Also hosted on 30th March is a special satellite wherein players can win a seat to the PLO Event of the PokerStars and Monte Carlo Casino EPT Grand Final.
Also introducing for the first time on Pokerstars tables is a new poker game of Five Card Omaha. Here instead of the four cards dealt to each player, each poker player receives five hole cards. Each one has to make a best five card combination by using two and only two of his hole cards and three out of the community cards. There is also a Hi/Lo version of this game available on PokerStars.
Courchevel is another Omaha Hold’em 5 Card game wherein players are dealt five hole cards but the first card of the community opens before the pre-flop betting stage. After pre-flop betting is done, the remaining 2 cards of the flop are dealt. The rest of the game is same as 5 card Omaha. Courchevel is offered in No Limit, Pot Limit, Limit and Hi/Lo versions.
These new games will only add to the already dominant nature of PokerStars in online poker.
