Tournament Curse

The last three tournaments I’ve played prior to tonight are starting to make me feel cursed.

Twice I lost to a 2-outer on the river and once lost when I flopped a set and the villain flopped a bigger set.

Another tournament about a month ago involved a villain hitting a 3-outer on the river.

Now comes tonight.  Again I flopped a set (of 4’s) in a pot where 5 players called a pre-flop raise to 3 BB’s, including me on the button.  It goes check, check, all-in for 10 BB’s, another all-in for 11 BB’s, and I shove for my last 15 BB’s.  The other two players fold, one of them announcing he had AK.  Angelo, the second to go all-in, turns over KK, and the case K comes on the turn.  A 1-outer this time.

I started that hand with 18 Big Blinds in my stack.  Not great, but definitely not desperate.  Winning would have put me up to 51 Big Blinds, making me one of the chip leaders and in position for a deep run.

So I did some research on curse removal, and found several interesting approaches, including these (enjoy!):

Option 1:

  • Establish a gold idol of Nāga and worship him according to the rituals followed in the native’s house.
  • Cow, land, sesame and gold should be donated according to one’s capacity for the expansion of one’s clan.

Option 2:

Get a piece of wax paper or another kind of strong paper.

Write on it carefully what you know about the curses/hexes, like who cast them, or where they came from, and/or when this started (the date). If you don’t know any details, just write “My two curses or hexes” on the paper so that we all know what this for and what it’s going to do.

Place three spoonfuls of salt (rock salt, or sea salt, or just ordinary table salt) into the paper and make a bundle out of it that you can tie to a piece of string.

Wear it over your heart for three days and three nights.

The salt will draw out the curses or hexes and take them into itself.

On the morning of the fourth day, open the package, and let water wash the salt away. You can do this in a river or by an ocean shore, scatter it outside when it is raining hard, or simply in your sink if you have no access to flowing water elsewhere.

Burn the paper and the string.

Wear a rose quartz pendant or a healing or lucky charm you already own over the heart for 9 days after that, so that whatever was damaged by the presence of the curse or hex gets healed and restored, and your defense systems grow strong again.

Option 3:

Be sure that nobody else can see you (close all curtains, doors, windows, etc.).  Now, get a bowl full of water and put 3 drops of green dye in it.

Now that you’ve done that, slowly tip the bowl over each candle allowing them to be extinguished while at the same time chanting:  “Juina Shelt Fonsed.”

You must do this very slowly and imagine the spell being lifted from your body and all the good luck and fortune that will soon come to you and the evil that will go to the person that placed the hex/curse upon you.
