Omaha Poker - 21st Century Edition

Omaha Poker - 21st Century Edition Book
This book thoroughly explains Omaha, the action-packed poker form that uses four cards in your hand.

Ciaffone has now republished it in 2006 under the new title 'Omaha Poker.' The entire book has been rewritten, with 20 extremely informative pages added on pot-limit Omaha high. If you have an earlier edition of the book, no need to buy the new one -- unless your game is pot-limit Omaha high, in which case you need the new book big time.
