SUPER EDIT: saw similar post, apparently in Omaha Hold 'em, you can only use 2 "hole" cards (your hand) out of the four. Leaving post for others
I'm awful at Poker, and I discovered I had a little better luck with Omaha Hold 'em rather than Texas Hold 'em.
Problem is, it seems that sometimes my hand simply isn't recognized. I also pre-ordered the game for my lady, and watched the same thing happened to her on her computer.
Here's a screencap from minutes ago There's no subtitles in the screen, but you can see hands have been revealed up by the names, as well as 5 of my cards lift up from the bottom of the screen to indicate a hand.
Sure, a pair of 5s might be crap, but apparently an unrelated Jack and 7 provide me with better odds than the pair that was exclusive to me.
I believe Brock won with a pair of aces, when I had 2 pair.
Am I wrong about the rules of Omaha Hold'em? Did I completely misinterpret something?
Thanks, fun game so far (despite this experience). I might need to switch back to Texas until I get an answer.
(answer is I'm dumb and didn't research anything)
