• Horrible Fortune in Poker

    For a match where most players rarely consider fortune, there are lots of superstitions in poker. When you say that a player was lucky in that poker tournament they won, be careful of how you mention it. For instance, if you mention that you were unfortunate, your luck may never change.

    Ok, that might appear to be a bit strange, but poker is a game armed with superstitions. Did you know that if you are playing a game with 2 seperate decks and you are asked to select the deck, you should always pick the deck that is the furthest away from you? Or, how about If you have a run of terrible cards, you need to settle on a hankerchief to break your poor luck? It’s certainly considered good luck to blow through a pack of cards when they are being shuffled.

    A few other fascinating poker folklores are:

    • You might be able to alter the run of cards by passing around your chair 3 times.
    • The luckiest position at the poker table looks at the entrance.
    • The worst chair has its rear to a fireplace.
    • When altering seats, you need to always do so clockwise.
    • The most detrimental poker card is the four of clubs.
    • It is very unlucky to sit with your legs crossed at the poker table.
    • Sun is a terrible day for wagering on cards.
    • The thirteenth is also a horrible day, regardless of when it falls during the week.
