The following article will explain the different types of drawing hands in Pot Limit Omaha. Further explanations on how to play in these situations, including bet sizing and optimal lines can be found in the other articles, such as flop, turn and river play. This one will simply help you assess the strength of your drawing hands in given situations.

Basically, in contrast with Hold'em, all your draws should be to the nuts in Omaha. In most cases it is incorrect to invest money to only make the second-best hand. Because of the increased number of cards in Omaha it is much more common to have the nuts, at least enough to make drawing to a non-nut hand unprofitable. These concepts will be explained in the following examples. It is recommended that you read the article "How to discount Outs in Pot Limit Omaha" to fully comprehend draws.
