S.D. Admin. R. 20:18:16:11.01 - The play - Omaha

Omaha must be played according to the following rules:

(1) The dealer must deal four cards to each player face down and one at a time. The first party to receive a card is the player to the left of the player who has the button. The last player to receive a card is the player assigned the button. After each player has received four cards, there is a betting round. The player to the left of the button opens and each following player must call, raise, or fold;
(2) The dealer then deals three community cards from the deck and turns them face upward in the center of the table. Community cards are common to the hand of every active player in the pot;
(3) After the flop, the betting continues for another round. The player sitting left of the player assigned the button opens. After the opening, a player must call, raise, or fold; and
(4) The dealer deals another community card face upward in the center of the table. Another betting round occurs. The dealer deals another community card face upward in the center of the table for the final betting round. After all bets are made and if there are two or more players remaining in the game, there is a showdown with the highest hand and the lowest hand splitting the pot. A player who wins in one direction and ties a player for the other direction receives three-quarters of the pot. A player who wins both directions without a tie receives all of the pot. Aces may be used for either high or low.
