This is a discussion on In poker do you have any good luck charm? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; Hello everyone, I have questions about luck.
1) What is luck for you?
2) How do you experience luck in your life?
3) In what poker situation did
Luck is funny sometimes,,,,recently my mother gave me a Bible my late grandmother gave me as a child(6-7 yrs old) The moment i put it at the computer (for luck) i won a tournament for over $300,,,, Thx Grandma! $$$
I believe that the luck of any player is directly influenced by his experience and skills. If players with no experience and skills are lucky to win, then I am convinced that this phenomenon is temporary and short-lived.
3) In what poker situation did you feel with your greatest luck?
Regards and GL!
Having iQ level above 120 is the true luck. In the age of 90, when you'll look back at your life you will realise why.
Sadly, but statistics say that people with iQ level under 80 more probably will have Alzegeimer disease starting in the age of 70, ofc if they will live to 70 years.
High iQ level will tell you that you've been lucky to be born, to have a life, to be educated person, to have internet that gives you options for self education and gives you multiple options to become rich by providing a product or service that makes human society better, something like paying back that credit to the society that raised you and earning profit by investing your ideas to the world.
From such point of view - what product or useful service do you create for yourself and for the society in general, when you're playing poker? Is it a so called "good luck" if you've spent 200 hours at the poker table instead of spending 200 hours to learn some programming language and writing some program that will be giving you a stable and constant profit being sold in the App store or in the Play Market? What is better - to spend 20 years playing poker or to spend 6 years learning neuro surgery and becoming a surgeon who saves lifes and earns stable and high income per year unlike poker player?
Can we compare a poker table to 9 people sitting and riding a 2 wheel bicycle and playing pick-pocketing tournament during a ride? Each year only the "bicycle" seller has stable profit and blessed by good luck, cause he provides a service for sick people who need it. Do you understand who the bicycle seller is? And why all 9 players, as a community are always not having profit and only doing damage to themself, by not evolving the society and themselves.
So, being objective, how and why you put words "luck" and "poker" together? Any poker player is unlucky, it's a sick human, who is masturbating same 52 cards over and over again so that casino or poker site can have profit and that poker player can have a chance plus dose of serotonin - is this a sign of luck? LOL
You know where you can feel the real luck? Grab $200-300, go to the store, spend all money for chocolate bars, candy, and other types of sweets, load you car with sweets and go to the nearst orphanage, ask to see the kids when they're playing outside and ask ladies who work there to split sweets among the children. Be there and feel how lucky you are that you can help them, how lucky you've been than you've had your childhood, and how lucky you can be in the nearest future to help them again. This is the true luck, not your trashy gutshot turning to royal flush at the river.
Luck is merely coincidence followed by a favourable consequence. Our brain is a curious thing constantly looking for new information. When we win out of the blue, rather than just accept coincidence our brain will seek to make a metaphysical connection: the coin picked up from the floor, that thing you did differently that day., a talisman in a pocket that someone gave you.
Poker wins are through a series of chaotic events and calculations physical perception and perceived risk vs reward.
If one wants to win more
Play/ practice more
Memorise the basic math at various points play
Play different games you may find one that particularly suits you. It could be because of the speed or numerics of that particular game.
Luck/coincidence may occur between 10&30% of your game. But I wouldn't rely on it.
In a game born from chaos which progresses through numeracy and psychology to an end point. To then appropriate mysticism to an object/act seems absurd.
But, hey. If a talisman of any sort helps you so be it.
But, its not for me.
Wasn't it a professional golf player that said, " The more I practice. The luckier I get." ☺
My lucky dice. I like rolling it out on big hands. It makes all my decisions for me. Like if I roll One Then I bluff. 2 Then I raise. And so forth. Works well. Never Fails. I Always Win. Good Luck At The Tables.
In my opinion happiness is life satisfaction. Happiness is a dream come true. Every moment bringing joy is a happy moment. If a man is safe, healthy, loved, needed by others - he feels happy. In poker, luck is rare, I never play with cards 2.7 3.6 4.8 4.10 if I played and won, it would be luck, with other cards this is a good game
1) for me luck is when we have few probabilities, but we win.
2) just who enjoys the lucky is that one being in "the pot". I am very conservative, in my poker and in my life to be considered a lucky person.
3)when I am nuts hearing "all in".
In poker, it's all about percentages and odds. If you rely on good luck charms when you are playing poker, you will probably lose. Poker is a game of skills. Poker isn't bingo. A lucky person can beat Phil Ivey at bingo, but can that lucky person beat Phil Ivey at poker?
Luck for me in poker is win a bad beat and karma also like other opinions.
In life also, I did many things when I'm young, but now I take the prize of it. Think positive and help other people when you can.
Never relied on luck. But it’s good when luck is in your life. I believe in any business, you must rely on your knowledge and skills. Good luck helps several times, and knowledge is always with you.
I build my own gods out of clay and put them in front of the computer while playing. As long as the luck is with me, I bow before them. When the luck goes against me I banish them to the hidden zone, where they will never see the light again. I then build new gods
Yes. I keep a crystal and a stone I got from a Japanese restaurant in my pockets when I play live. Sometimes when I'm playing on line. It may not work all the time, but I just feels better to have them there.
