I've never believed in superstitions, in fact I'm quite skeptical about many things.

I would never believe in pre-grind rituals to have any effectiveness.

I think there are lucky days, but most of the time it's unlucky

I am not superstitious at all. I do not believe in mysticism.

Hello! I agree - all these rituals and attributes are for those who believe in them and don't believe in their own abilities. For me, it's also very important to have a good mood before the game. And also, after observing and analyzing the factors that can influence my decisions, I either try to avoid creating them or not to react to them; sometimes it's difficult, but quite achievable.

In my opinion, the main thing is to sit down to play poker rested and sober, then there will be much more chances to win something, even if you are superstitious.

I'll always get some sleep before the game, I'll go to the shower and do everything that might distract me, after which I bring food to eat and some water to drink while playing a poker game and try not to be distracted by other factors when I'm bored watching a movie, there are no other superstitions I think it has nothing to do with poker

I consider Poker to be a game of skill and luck. Superstitions have no place in my game.

Do you follow any rituals, activities, etc
For me, the main thing is to get a good night's sleep before the game. I can't play when I didn't sleep well. This is probably the only factor that affects my decision to play or not.

Not superstitious but if I'm playing higher stakes MTT's I'll make sure I'm well rested, shower before playing and make a coffee just before the MTT's starts.

If I'm just gonna play cash I have a coffee before sitting or pour a glass of scotch to sip on and enjoy while playing.

Cheers!!!

I think that superusers are everywhere, and only the scandal about GG makes them sometimes carelessly silent

Before important tournaments I try to limit the number of poker tournaments, sometimes I even try to sleep in the afternoon before several hours the start of an important tournament. Am I superstitious? Probably, but I will not write in which poker situations I am superstitious, as it will help many players in the game against me. ;)
