Omaha No Limit

Omaha No Limit poker allows any player to raise the bet by any amount including his entire stake, or else he must call or raise the previous bet or raise if he wishes to stay in the hand.

Omaha Limit Poker

In Omaha Limit Poker a player can raise the pot to a lower limit, this limit doubles at some point of the game (after the turn card). This double wager amount is referred to as the big bet i.e. in a $5/$10 table the Limit may be capped at $5 for the pre flop and for after the flop, then, after the turn card the limit is increased to $10.
