Horrible Fortune in Poker
December 2nd, 2012 by Deacon

For a match where most enthusiasts rarely consider fortune, there are lots of folklore in poker. When you say that someone was fortunate in that poker tournament they captured, be careful of how you mention it. For instance, if you say that you were unfortunate, your fortune may never change.

Ok, that may sound a bit strange, but poker is a casino game armed with folklores. Did you realize that if you’re betting a game with two different decks and you are asked to pick the deck, you should always pick the deck that is furthest from you? Or, what If you have a streak of poor cards, you have to hang out on a hankerchief to break your terrible luck? It’s certainly thought of as good luck to blow through a pack of cards when they’re being shuffled.

A few other interesting poker folklores are:

  • You might be able to alter the run of cards by walking around your chair three times.
  • The luckiest position at the poker table looks at the entry.
  • The most detrimental chair has its back to a fireplace.
  • When switching chairs, you need to always do so clockwise.
  • The most detrimental poker card is the 4 of clubs.
  • It is most unfortunate to sit with your legs crossed at the poker table.
  • Fri is a terrible day for playing cards.
  • The thirteenth is also a terrible day, despite when it falls during the week.
