After this is what is called the Turn in which the fourth communal card dealt. The the River card is dealt which is the fifth (and final) communal card dealt.

Omaha Poker

Omaha Poker is played with 2 to 10 players and it is very similar to Texas Hold'em, but there are some very major differences. Every player has to make the best five-card hand combination from a total of nine cards. These nine cards are made up of four pocket cards and five community cards.

This makes the game much higher in hand combinations. Plus every player has to use 2 cards from the pocket and 3 cards from the board which are the community cards to make a hand.
