Terrible Fortune in Poker

[ English | Deutsch | Español | Français | Italiano ]

For a match where most enthusiasts rarely consider good luck, there are tonnes of folklore in poker. When you say that a player was blessed in that poker tournament they captured, be careful of how you say it. For example, if you say that you were unfortunate, your fortune may never change.

Ok, that may sound a bit strange, but poker is a game loaded with superstitions. Did you realize that if you are betting a game with 2 different decks and you’re asked to choose the deck, you should always select the deck that is the furthest away from you? Or, how about If you get a run of terrible cards, you need to sit on a hankerchief to break your terrible luck? It’s certainly thought of as good luck to blow through a deck of cards while they are being randomized.

Some other fascinating poker superstitions are:

  • You might be able to alter the run of cards by going around your chair 3 times.
  • The luckiest spot at the poker table faces the entrance.
  • The most detrimental spot has its rear to a fireplace.
  • When shifting chairs, you need to constantly do so following the clock.
  • The worst poker card is the four of clubs.
  • It is very unlucky to sit with your legs crossed at the poker table.
  • Mon is a horrible day for wagering on cards.
  • The 13th is also a bad day, no matter when it falls.
