              I have a wierd superstition...

              It is not one that involves "breaking" a bad run, but it is totally un-founded.

              Whenever I am all-in in an MTT, live or on line, I feel it is really BAD LUCK for me (or ANY who wants me to win) to yell out "No King/NO ACE" or whatever card you do NOT want to come.

              I want people only to call for cards that we WANT to come instead.

              As for the villain who is sheriffing my all-in...it is perfectly fine for HIM to yell (no queen, no jack) or whatever...

              This stems from a wierd belief that I've formed which says you can "create" what you want to happen. If you send out the negative energy (oh please do not let something bad happen) rather than postive energy (oh please, let something good happen!), you get BACK what you put out into the "universe".

              Yeah, I know...it is silly.

              but there it is!

                    I have the same superstition as JDean, I don't even like thinking about the cards my opponent needs.

                      Not really a superstition , but I am NEVER without (while dressed) a personalized poker chip that we gave out as forget-me-nots from my wedding (poker themed wedding of course) "Mike and Amber to have and to holdem" it reads.

                        Heres my one...

                        Hand before break, critically short stacked, I have a hand that "isnt great but is playable" (paint, suited connectors, low pocket pair etc), I decide there and then that I dont want to "stew" for another 5 minutes waiting for a good hand that may never come and say "F*** it. I am doubling up RIGHT NOW or hitting the rail". Sometimes I get these hour long periods of play where nothing is happening, no cards are coming, I cant hit flops etc etc. So I decide to try and make something happen. If it doesnt work out, I am out and walk away and put that bad hour/bad tourny to rest, but if it works, then I end the hour "on a high" and find myself "rejuvenated" and pumped up, ready for the hour of play to come after the break has ended.
