Do you have any personal superstitions relating to poker?
The reason I ask is because I have this strange one: I cannot speak numbers when I talk about my poker progress. I had this before my CC bankroll thread but I thought typing didn't count. As soon as I bragged, I took a dive. Before that thread, I'd always have a bad streak the day after I told my wife how well I did in dollars. Now, I just say "bad" or "good" or variations of those. I know it's stupid, but I just go along with it.
If you have any poker superstitions, share them here!
On a related subject:
I read about an old, widely-held, poker superstition that I thought was interesting. I read that most old-school poker players do not like to deal with $50 bills! There were 2 reasons given:
1) Counterfeit 50's are easier to pass since they are more rare than 100's and cashiers are not used to seeing them as often.
2) In one's personal stack of bills, 50's can be confused with 5's and given as a 5 by mistake. I guess a certain amount of drunkenness might have an impact on that one.
Just thought I'd share.
