For a match where most players occasionally consider luck, there are tons of folklore in poker. When you say that a player was blessed in that poker tournament they captured, be careful of how you say it. For instance, if you say that you were unfortunate, your fortune may not change.

Ok, that might sound a bit strange, but poker is a casino game armed with superstitions. Did you realize that if you’re gambling a game with two different decks and you are asked to select the deck, you should always choose the deck that is furthest from you? Or, how about If you have a run of terrible cards, you need to sit on a hankerchief to break your poor luck? It’s actually thought of as good luck to blow through a deck of cards when they are being mixed up.

A few other interesting poker folklores are:

  • You might be able to alter the run of cards by walking around your chair 3 times.
  • The most beneficial chair at the poker table looks at the entrance.
  • The unluckiest position has its rear to a fireplace.
  • When shifting chairs, you should always do so clockwise.
  • The most detrimental poker card is the four of clubs.
  • It is most unfortunate to sit with your legs crossed at the poker table.
  • Sunday is a bad day for playing cards.
  • The 13th is also a bad day, regardless of when it falls during the week.
