Do you know why there are 52 cards in a deck of cards besides big and small kings?
Poker is the equivalent of our calendar Let’s see how the next deck of cards has in common with the calendar. First of all, like I just mentioned, there are 4 suits in a deck, and each suit has 13 cards for a total of 52 cards, plus a joker card.
Let’s start with the number 52. In common sense, nothing else is associated with 52? By the way, there are 52 weeks in a year. In mathematics, we subtract two digits by adding them together. Now, if you subtract the number, you get 5+2=7, which is a kind of number of days and the number of visible stars, and in many ways, 7 is a magical number, considered the most spiritual number. It is also widely used in various occult teachings, including the Bible. It’s amazing, isn’t it? We can imagine that in ancient times, humans discovered that a year consisted of 365 days and nights. Looking up at the sky, they also noticed the sun, moon, and 5 other visible spheres, which we now know are planets orbiting the sun. Then the number 7 obtained by their combination is divided by the number of days in a year, and there are 52 cycles in a year. Now we call them “weeks” and “weeks”. Wise men recognize that this number has more significance and use these simple facts as a starting point for more advanced research.
We then assign a point value to each card according to the math of the cards. Ace is 1, 2 is 2, and so on until J is 11, Q is 12, K is 13, now if we add the value of each card in the whole deck together. Guess what the result is? This means that 4 kings are 4 13s, 4 queens are 4 12s, and so on, what do you get when you add a deck together? Can you guess 365? OK, pretty close. In fact the sum is 364. We know there are 365 1/4 days in a year, so what about the remaining 1 1/4 days? There is one more card in the whole deck that we did not count, and that is the Joker card. guess what? The value of the Joker card is exactly 1/4 days, which makes the value of the entire card add up to exactly the number of days in a year. The 12 royal cards represent the 12 months of the year. 1/4 of the Joker’s point value of 1 comes from the fact that he is “all suits plus himself”. He is in his own right, and exists as a unique balancing element in the poker system and many other cards,
But these point values alone can convince ordinary people that there are more interesting things in playing cards. In fact, the origin of playing cards is a tool for measuring time and the movement of the earth and other things around the sun and stars. Using the most advanced methods, entire decks of playing cards were once used to calculate the precise motions of planets in the solar system. The more we learn about poker, the more we discover its charm. Every aspect of its construction and design is significant and relevant to the world we live in
