Terrible Luck in Poker

[ English | Deutsch | Español | Français | Italiano ]

For a match where the majority of gamblers rarely consider good luck, there are tons of folklore in poker. When you say that a player was blessed in that poker tournament they won, be careful of how you mention it. For example, if you say that you were unlucky, your chances may never change.

Ok, that might sound a bit ubsurd, but poker is a casino game armed with folklores. Did you know that if you’re playing a game with 2 seperate decks and you’re asked to select the deck, you should always select the deck of cards that is the furthest away from you? Or, how about If you have a run of terrible cards, you have to settle on a hankerchief to break your poor luck? It is actually considered good fortune to blow through a deck of cards when they are being randomized.

A few other interesting poker folklores are:

  • You will be able to change the run of cards by going around your chair three times.
  • The luckiest seat at the poker table faces the door.
  • The worst seat has its back to a fireplace.
  • When shifting spots, you should always do so clockwise.
  • The most detrimental poker card is the 4 of clubs.
  • It is very unfortunate to cross your legs when sitting at the poker table.
  • Sunday is a poor day for gambling on cards.
  • The 13th is also a bad day, regardless of when it falls during the week.
