A hot seat is when you are catching a run of cards that are unbelievably good, and if you get up and leave, the next person to take the seat will also run unbelievably good. So, the thought is that it is the seat that is hot, no matter the player. People believe in cold seats as well, I remember one day I was moved from one table to another at a live tournament and upon arriving I was told how every player would had sat in that seat had taken a really bad beat to end their tournament (and sure enough I did too). So, I guess the real question is: do you think because enough people believe in such things that it becomes a self fulfilling prophecy?
