I am sure this comes up from time to time but I didn't see it on the last few pages so here goes.
A lot of players are superstious (sp) and have things they hold or do for good luck.
Me, I dig out one of my 8 track rock tapes at the start of each session and play it and if it is a winning session I play the same tape again until it is on for a losing session.
After it is on at the end of a losing session I move on to a new tape.
A session consists of one tournament or one SNG, or one ring game session.
I have had good luck with my current selection with 4 positive sessions in a row.
Unfortunately the tape is Rock and Roll Lullabies and I am mostly posting this to keep awake while I play the Privledge freeroll at Stars
I am almost hoping to lose before I go insane and the men in the little white coats come to take me away haha.
Does anyone else have any lucky charms or routines they perform for good luck?

Funny I should run into your post, because yesterday I was washing clothes and found my wife's lucky charm and so I went and got it for her just now. Back when I first started playing poker on Party Poker in 2001 I thought I would get me something lucky and keep it near. Well I bought a chain and a thing on it that was as big as a 50 cent piece and had PapaC cut into it. Well back then I didn't even know how to play very good and lost a lot of money and a long with everything else the chain and all went to the pawn shop. My luck now is to know when to hold them and know when to fold them.

re: Poker & Poker and good luck charms
I've never bought into any of this in anything. Not sports, not poker, not life, not anything.
Regardless of what item you're holding in your pocket while you're playing poker, the cards are still coming down the same way. It is what it is. I mean think about it ...how could it be physically possible that your good luck "charm" is having an influence on what hands you're dealt in the pocket and what kind of cards come down on the flop, turn, and river?
Hey, anyone is entitled to be superstitious but it really is just a total waste of time and mental energy. The guy who studies, plays, analyzes, discusses, and reviews is going to play well. Not the guy with a lucky penny he found in the Walmart parking lot.

Most of people think that there is a strong relation between poker and luck. Everyone knows, no one can do nothing about the cards you are dealt. People expect more when they are playing but if they don't get it, they start feeling like they have bad luck etc.. But personally I feel strategies are more important than luck in a poker game.
