An Omaha hand simulator is a tool that allows you to simulate two or more Omaha poker hands. You can use the same simulator for both Omaha Hi and Omaha Hi/Lo poker. This tool allows simple simulations of games where you know each player’s cards. You can also think of complex situations where a player could have several different combinations. To use this simulator, you enter possible hand combinations into the system, which then evaluates the hands and tells you which player has the winning hand.
The results you get from an Omaha simulator will show you the pot equity percentage for each hand along with the percentage of wins and losses for each hand. Pot equity percentage refers to the average amount of money each hand wins. It takes into account the occurrence of ties in the calculation. If you get a result that says the race is void, that means you only have to have participated in one hand. To get calculations you need to enter at least two hands. You also need to make sure you have enough cards in the deck. For example, if you have five players, not every one of them can hold an ace.
There are also other buttons you can use on the simulator. With the Unroll button you can see the pre-flop, flop, turn and river odds for each hand. To use this button, all you have to do is enter all hands and the final board, then click the button. Graph is the name of another button in this simulator. The equity chart shows you how often a given hand has equity against other hands that you enter into the simulator in the next round of betting. If you don’t have boarding cards, the chart shows the data for a certain number of flops. If you have three board cards, the chart shows you the expected values for a given number of turn cards. The axis on the left has a label that tells you which hands are shown on the graph.
You cannot use placeholders or ranges when using this simulator. You must select cards for each hand from a standard deck of identical cards. The simulator also gives you results of exhaustive and random race outcomes. Exhaustive races are those where every possible combination of cards is considered and accurate. Random race results are approximate.
When you request the percentage of hands created, the simulator will go as close as possible to the percentage you chose without exceeding it. There are certain symbols that you must use when using a simulator. For an all low card hand, you would enter four Ls. To participate in a hand containing two aces, you would enter AA**. Any hand containing two hearts requires *h*h. Once you get used to using the simulator, you can calculate practically any hand.
