For a match where the majority of enthusiasts rarely consider luck, there are lots of superstitions in poker. When you mention that someone was fortunate in that poker tournament they captured, be careful of how you say it. For example, if you mention that you were unlucky, your chances may not change.

Ok, that may sound a bit strange, but poker is a 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 of cards that’s furthest from you? Or, how about If you get a run of poor cards, you need to sit on a hankerchief to break your terrible luck? It is certainly thought of as good fortune to blow through a pack of cards when they are being shuffled.
