Poker strategies are generally quite complex and require much study, practice and clever execution. But let’s be honest, who has time for that? Time is money, right? Prophegy is a secret poker strategy that not many poker players are aware of, which is why it is considered “secret”.
Poker prophegy came about in the late 1970’s, when poker players were experiencing a rise in other players adopting strategies to enhance their games. The truth is, once a strategy leaks out into the open, it loses much of its usefulness and casinos become aware of the strategy and look out for it. That’s why, when prophegy was created, it was kept a secret and only shared with serious players who wanted to be the only ones to have the upper hand in the majority of rounds.
A man by the name of Edward O. Thorp is said to be the father of card counting in the 1960’s. By the end of the 1960’s and early 1970’s, card counting became one of the most popular poker strategies around and was banned in most casinos. Thorp realized his mistake of letting his secrets reach too many players, so after five years of trial and error; he eventually came up with the sandwich effect, also known as prophegy. We’ll get into more detail about how to use the strategy on the page titled “Secret Strategy”.
Thorp then decided that only a select few could know about prophegy and these players became some of the greatest to ever play the game of poker. They rose to stardom very quickly because prophegy requires very little study and only a little practice. The strategy relies primarily on intuition and a feel for the other players.
