Horrible Fortune in Poker

For a game where the majority of players rarely consider luck, there are tonnes of superstitions in poker. When you mention that a player 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 fortune may never change.

Ok, that may appear to be a bit ubsurd, but poker is a casino game loaded with superstitions. Did you know that if you’re betting a game with 2 seperate decks and you’re asked to choose the deck, you should always pick the deck of cards that is the furthest away from you? Or, how about If you get a streak of terrible cards, you have to settle on a hankerchief to destroy your terrible luck? It’s actually considered good luck to blow through a pack of cards when they are being mixed up.

A few other interesting poker superstitions are:

  • You might be able to alter the run of cards by going around your chair three times.
  • The luckiest seat at the poker table faces the entrance.
  • The most detrimental position has its back to a fireplace.
  • When changing seats, you need to always do so following the clock.
  • The most detrimental poker card is the 4 of clubs.
  • It’s most unlucky to sit with your legs crossed at the poker table.
  • Mon is a terrible day for betting on cards.
  • The thirteenth is also a horrible day, despite what day of the week it is.
