• Horrible Luck in Poker

    [ English | Deutsch | Español | Français | Italiano ]

    For a game where the majority of players occasionally consider luck, there are lots of folklore in poker. When you mention that a player was blessed in that poker tournament they won, be mindful of how you say it. For example, if you mention that you were unlucky, your luck may never change.

    Ok, that might sound a bit strange, but poker is a casino game loaded with folklores. Did you realize that if you are gambling a game with 2 seperate 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 poor cards, you need to sit on a hankerchief to break your bad luck? It is certainly considered good fortune to blow through a deck of cards while they’re being randomized.

    Some other interesting poker superstitions are:

    • You can change the run of cards by going around your chair three times.
    • The most beneficial position at the poker table faces the entrance.
    • The unluckiest spot has its rear to a fireplace.
    • When changing chairs, you should always do so clockwise.
    • The most detrimental poker card is the four of clubs.
    • It is very unfortunate to sit with your legs crossed at the poker table.
    • Mon is a bad day for betting on cards.
    • The 13th is also a terrible day, regardless of when it falls during the week.
