# In Omaha Poker, can we use 0,1,3 or 4 hole cards when selecting the best 5 cards? [closed]

According to Wikipedia, in Omaha, a player must use exactly two hole cards and three communal cards when selecting the best hand.

In Texas Hold'em Poker, it is possible to use only the communal cards without using any hole cards, if the communal cards alone give the best hand.

So, is Omaha different from Texas Hold'em, in the sense that an exact number of hole cards must be used in Omaha?
