on that poem about poker on page 5 , all other versions that i find including the song do not mention the Joker, this appears to be something added by Fenn
</div>


In poker, not all games use the Joker. Amateurs like to use it as it makes more powerful hands a little easier to get. They also like to use other cards as "wild"... sometimes 2s or deuces, one-eyed jacks, or any card desirable by the dealer. When used, "wild" cards can be anything you want them to be. But do they really increase the odds of winning, or just make the game a little more fun?



Mr. Fenn is definitely the Joker, or wild card in this hunt. He tells us the poem is straight forward. That's like poker without any wild cards at all. It's as simple as it can be. You know what's out there its only what's in the poem, and possibly scattered clues in the book if you know where to look (I don't), and none intentionally put there to help find the chest.



Add a joker... or Mr. Fenns comments, videos, other books, emails, whatever, and all you've done is made it more fun for you. It doesn't increase the odds of winning. I think it actually only increases the amount of possibilities or hands. None of which if really valid, couldn't be had without the wild cards or Joker.



There's lots of stuff that has been added to this hunt that makes it more fun. That's the Jokers purpose. Mr. Fenn is having a great time watching us chase every which way. He knows what makes us think twice. It's one way to help the chase last longer.



If you want to increase your chances of finding the chest, study the man if you choose to, but eliminate the joker.

Thanks for the info re. poker. Guess one should play to really know the game.

You're right about 'study the man'.

Not so sure about eliminating the Joker. As you say, it could be ff.

Since it can be anything, it could also be death.
