Horrible Luck in Poker

For a match where the majority of participants rarely consider good luck, there are tons of folklore in poker. When you say that a player was blessed in that poker tournament they captured, be mindful of how you mention it. For example, if you mention that you were unlucky, your chances may never change.

Ok, that might sound a bit ubsurd, but poker is a game loaded with superstitions. Did you know that if you’re playing a game with two seperate decks and you’re asked to select the deck, you should always select the deck of cards that is furthest from you? Or, how about If you have a streak of poor cards, you must hang out on a hankerchief to break your poor luck? It is actually thought of as good luck to blow through a deck of cards while they are being shuffled.

A few other interesting poker superstitions are:

  • You will be able to alter the run of cards by going around your chair 3 times.
  • The luckiest spot at the poker table looks at the entry.
  • The most detrimental chair has its back to a fireplace.
  • When shifting chairs, you should always do so clockwise.
  • The most detrimental poker card is the 4 of clubs.
  • It is most unlucky to cross your legs when sitting at the poker table.
  • Fri is a horrible day for gambling on cards.
  • The 13th is also a horrible day, no matter what day of the week it is.
