There are at least as many variations of poker as there are cards in a deck. Yesterday the game most favored by professional poker players was Texas hold'em. Today it is hold'em's close cousin, Omaha. By far the most prevalent form of poker in Europe for the past two decades, Omaha is now enjoying a tremendous surge in popularity in the United States, thanks largely to its reputation as an action game. In Farha on Omaha, Sam Farha, the world's greatest Omaha player, and Storms Reback, a noted poker writer, offer simple tips that will help transform those new to the game into winning players. The authors provide strategies on how to beat the three most popular forms of Omaha--limit, eight-or-better, and pot-limit--in both cash games and tournaments. Sam Farha, one of the best professional poker players in the world, is best known for having finished second in the main event of the 2003 World Series of Poker. He plays in the biggest cash games in the world, including regular stints in the famed Big Game in Las Vegas. He has won two gold bracelets at the World Series of Poker, in the $2,500. Pot-Limit Omaha event in 1996 and the $5,000 Omaha High-Low Eight-or-Better event in 2006. After playing at the highest stakes in the world for nearly three decades, he has earned a reputation as one of the greatest Omaha players on the planet. Now for the first time, he shares with readers the inside secrets of how to beat not only the legions of amateurs flocking to this hot "new" game but accomplished professionals, as well.
