Horrible Luck in Poker

[ English ]

For a game where the majority of players rarely consider luck, there are tons of superstitions in poker. When you say that someone was lucky in that poker tournament they won, be careful of how you mention it. For example, if you mention that you were unfortunate, your chances may never change.

Ok, that might sound a bit ubsurd, but poker is a game loaded with superstitions. Did you realize that if you’re wagering a game with two seperate decks and you are asked to pick the deck, you should always choose the deck that is furthest from you? Or, how about If you get a streak of poor cards, you must settle on a hankerchief to break your bad luck? It’s certainly thought of as good fortune to blow through a deck of cards when they’re being shuffled.

A few other interesting poker superstitions are:

  • You might be able to change the run of cards by going around your chair 3 times.
  • The luckiest spot at the poker table looks at the entry.
  • The worst seat has its rear to a fireplace.
  • When altering spots, you should always do so following the clock.
  • The unluckiest poker card is the 4 of clubs.
  • It is most unfortunate to cross your legs when sitting at the poker table.
  • Fri is a bad day for gambling on cards.
  • The thirteenth is also a bad day, no matter when it falls.
