- When I gamble I have this little fish that sits on my computer desk, or I will carry it in my pocket when I go to the land casino. Seems to me, I usually do better when I have that little fish. Sound fishy? HA, I know but I was wondering if anyone else had a good luck charm to speak of and do you think you do better when you have it with you? Some people carry a token of some sort, some people repeat words, some people rub the machine, etc. What do YOU do to get your luck running?

"There is one habit I’ve developed—a superstition you might say—that I believe may ward off bad luck, though. Many poker players have lucky charms they bring to the table: a rabbit’s foot, pictures of family, etc. I think that’s rather silly, thinking you can influence the so-called 'poker Gods' with your goofy trinkets. What I always do is bring Lucky Charms, a whole bowl. Anyone who dares knock me out of a poker game knows very well they’ll be receiving a bowlful of cereal and milk in the face shortly thereafter. (This is the application of a theory that behavioral psychologists call 'deterrence.') 'Good game and good day,' I say, making my typically classy exit, a true testament to sportsmanship and integrity in the competitive realm of poker. Why, yes, I do consider myself a great ambassador of the game."
- I don't think there is a gambler that does not have some kind of superstition or good luck charm. Sometimes when i go to the casino strangers can be a good luck charm for me. If a person sits next to me and i get a good hit on a poker hand im thinking......omg i hope this person does'nt leave soon!! When they get up i feel doomed.
It also works the opposite for me...sometimes i will see a person lurking around for a seat and i think oh no don't sit by me your a jinx!
My favorite good luck charm is a penny i find and of course i have to say the ole "find a penny pick it up...all day long have good luck". I will put that penny in my pocket and hold on to it when i need that fourth Ace..lol
