On the final round of betting, the player who bets
first (or checks first if no one else bets) is required to show their cards first at the showdown. If they have the
best hand, the remaining players may/may not show their cards as they wish. The aggressors’ hand is only turned
over first if he was the last to initiate action on the river.
There is a set rank of cards, which is used for deciding the winning
combination. To view the various hands that are possible,If two or more hands
are the same ranking, the winner is the one having the higher cards. For example, a Flush with an Ace high beats a
Flush with a King high. If the pocker hands remain tied, then the highest card not being held in common (the
kicker) determines the winner.
The suit order of the cards is not taken into account while deciding
on the winning cards.Poker star follow standard rules of pocker. Should pocker hands be absolutely identical
in ranking, the rule of pocker pot distribution will be split evenly between the two or more winning players. If

game play remains same for both No-Limit and Pot-Limit Omaha High game with a few exceptions to the rules mentioned
In Limit Omaha High a maximum of four bets is allowed per player
during any betting round. This includes a (1) bet, (2) raise, (3) re-raise, and (4) cap, but in No-Limit and
Pot-Limit there is no limit to the number of raises that a player can make. The only criteria being that you cannot
raise yourself, (i.e. if a player bets during a betting round, then that player would have to be raised by another
player in order for him/her to be able to re-raise). If all the other players in the hand only call or fold, the
player would not get an option to raise, because the last raise was done by him/her.
