Hey all i was wondering.... maybe its just my superstition but i always play a suited J-5 (jackson 5), especially when they are spades i am willing to put in lots-o-chips,while there is no logic behind at all.
(A straight is impossible and a pair of jacks is just mediocre,a flush is possible ofc but jack high leaves 3 over cards)its just that i always have a good feeling about this hand.

Brunson has the 10-2 and actually won the WSOP twice with it , that made me curious , is it just me that plays a not so good hand having faith it will come out right (it does regularly), or are there more mobbsters who have a (favourite) hand and whats theire logic behind it if there is one.....?

May the pokergods be with you, Worship

In my opinion there is no place for superstition in poker (nor anywhere else for that matter).

A superstition is just a leak you are unwilling to plug... Why would you want to indulge in that?



Cool song though...

I have had a time when i always played K9..dont know why.
Years ago i ordered a t-shirt from Full Tilt wich says K9 on the back with a pic of a dog of course.
From then i played K9 Always...bit stupid and no logic behind it but because you asked here it is...

i have a couple of them: back in the days when i was playing a few smaller sites (there were 1 table sng's with 3 places paid) i noticed that i was winning a lot of hands with 36o and 26o. very strange really, even more strange that is was off suit that delivered the results...so i have fond memories of those hands even now...

Years ago when I first started playing poker (for play chips) I used to 'like' K10, but I didn't really over-play it or anything, I just 'kinda' liked it. I haven't had a favourite hand or anything like that for years though. And I absolutely don't involve superstition into my game:

For example, playing J5 because you got dealt it on all 4 tables at once, or 8K because last three times you folded it you would have flopped a fullhouse, or any other stupid s**t like that.. all bad ideas.

I used to have a thing about any old Q4 which always seemed to come up trumps for me and have to say that on occasion when I am in a pot with it, ie limped to me in BB , then the lady still does me well.

Well, i think poker is not just about odds and good smarts, since its both a game of skill AND chance, sometimes a gut feeling about the outcome shouldnt be ignored ......

Now that you mention it,.... I'll opt for A A because it reminds me of a couple Wizards... and as you know,.... 2 aces can work MAGIC for your stack.... lol...

Now,...if you had K K in your pocket,...and got one on the flop,...you'd have K K K or 3 Kings,...or what I nickname 'The Magi' hand.... And yes,...they will come bearing gifts to you most often...

I actually do play a hand where in most cases I would not and it's usually only one suit. I play the 4,5 of diamonds more times then I should, but more times then I should, I come out ahead when playing the hand.
Don't really play this in any other flavor and don't know why I'm attracted to such a lame hand.

Good Luck All!

G'day mate

well since you asked the answer is yes.
There was a time when I always played any Ace 8 the dead man's hand.
It was a major leak in my game that cost me alot of money before I finally took me head out of my a$$ and forced myself to see the truth about what I was doing and why.
If you are playing Jack 5 for that reason then you need to fix a leak in your game and i know it is costing you money.

be cool

I always liked 89s. But there's a rational explanation to it. You're usually live, all you need to worry about is being against an overpair and even then it's still a great hand to suck out. But there's always a risk of hitting a flush and original raiser has better flush. That's what makes suited connectors dangerous even if you're very good at playing them.

Still, you shouldn't call a raise out of position when you know you don't have the best hand pre flop...

Don't ask me why it's 26s, makes quads and sometimes want to kick myself for laying it down. Hits so often it's worth seeing a flop with.

Thanks for all the reply's , its nice to see so many mobbsters so open about theire own playing.
It seems some of us do have a non logic hand they play even when the odds are against it,but like i said earlier poker (in my humble ignorant opinion) is a game of skill AND chance, i meen pocket rockets (AA) is still just a pair, that can be beaten by any trips.
As for superstition i dont believe in psychic mumbo jumbo normally but the j-5 Spade just feels good to me,same as other hands do for some in this thread.

Today is the 13th a good day to play poker, MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA (theatrical evil laugh)

May the wicked pokergod shine his dark light on you today .......

I personally like 4/4. I once got a fortune out of a machine when I was in highschool and my lucky number is 4. I also like 9/9 as I feel like I have 9 lives at times!!!

Smile

Also K/K

those are my 3 fav!

Thats not quite acurate , i can tell from experience , what does do the trick is the following.....

Sit on yer hands untill they go numb ... ... then its really like someone else is doing it ..... Shock
