    Here's a question for my superstitious VMBers: I was playing VP on my iPhone this morning to practice a variant of VP that I don't usually play.

    About 5 minutes of playing I'm dealt 4 to a royal and of course I get the Queen to complete the Royal Flush.

    I'm leaving for Vegas in 3 days. Is this a good omen or a bad omen?

    It means you probably wont get a royal on your phone anytime soon.

    Neither. Superstition is silly.

    ...I suspect it's as much an omen as getting that email from 'Trixie' saying she wants to hook up.
    ;)

    Superstition aside, after exhaustive proprietary mathematical calculations I've determined the royal is a good omen so get thyself to Vegas pronto and be sure to post pics.

    All apologies, Geogran!
    The term "calculations" is still a sore spot for me.
    I had my calculator confiscated by the math teacher back in 8th grade...:( I never got it back!

    It is most definitely a good or bad omen.

    I did this about a week before a trip once. I was satisfied with my actual trip result. Lol

    Curious as to which game you practiced.

    If it works the same as it does for me, then it's bad luck! I've had several royals when practicing, but never any real royals in Vegas.

    Looks like you used it up. Lightening doesnt strike the same place twice, of course until it does.

    LOL, wish I could tell you...
    I will tell you--DM & I both got TWO Royals the day we got our first one. I have had half a dozen now plus several 4-As on Double Double/Triple Double.
    I will tell you DH plays as much VP as me--and has NEVER had a Royal.
    And we know best play, fairly well.
