Definition of spade

Spade is one of the four suits of the conventional 52-card deck. In poker, spade is a suit that is worth as much as any other, but in some games spade will be the strongest suit. Games that give strength to the suit will usually consider spade as the strongest suit, then heart, then diamond and finally clover. Some friendly games also use spade to determine who will be the brewer. For example, in the first hand, to find out who will be the Brewer, each player is dealt a random card and the player with the highest spade card will be the Brewer.

Do you like the ace of spade?

From the above, we can conclude that the ace of spade is the highest card in the 52-card deck. Of course, to do this, you have to play a variant that considers the strength of the suits. But the ace of spade is not always positive. For example, in fortune-telling, the ace of spade is always a bad omen. It means a loss of money, an imminent or forthcoming break-up, and has a connection with anything that disturbs the balance. In short, it is better to have an ace of spade to poker than a fortune teller!
