To dream of playing poker represents situations where you or other people are strategically lying or bluffing to each other to get ahead. Not knowing what power or advantages your opposition has while carefully keeping your power or advantages a secret as well until it’s serves you. Feelings of not being afraid to make competing wagers while bluffing. Acting like you are not uncomfortable while everything is on the line. You have similar goals to someone else that you feel can’t be trusted or that’s betraying you.
Example: A man dreamed of walking past a table in his grandmother’s home watching people playing poker. In waking life he was experiencing two groups of people competing over him while being forced to wait by himself for it to end.
