Six-card Omaha and the return of Fusion PokerStars give the second breath to Fusion – an unusual combination of Hold’em and Omaha, where players begin a game with two cards and on the river end up with four. Limits from NL5 to NL5,000 are available.
Let’s revise the rules: players receive additional face down cards on the flop and turn, and the winner is determined by the rules of Omaha, using two cards from the hand. Last year, the game continued for two months in the lobby. And PokerStars as usual doesn’t disclose how much time the game will be available this time.
Pokerfuse reporters claim that a six-card Omaha should appear on PokerStars soon. They demonstrate any evidence, but according to their data, the poker room will use the Full Tilt development, where the game was available until the absorption of the room. It is expected that a game called 6-O will be included into a constant rotation of formats, as it previously happened with the five-card Omaha and its high-low version Courchevel.
In response to a GipsyTeam request, the room managers neither confirm nor deny this information. There wasn’t any official announcement, but it’s not hard to believe in it, because the benefits for the room are evident: the equity of hands in dealing is very close, it’s difficult to gain an advantage over amateurs, and the rake game generates even more than the classic Omaha.
