Jonah Card is the card in the Ten Card Poker Deal routine which will cause the loosing hand if you get it.

This principle is briefly described in Arthur Buckley's Card Control (2nd edition 1947).


"Jonah" comes from the Biblical whale tale of throwing Jonah off the ship (he was bad luck) and into the mouth of a whale.[1]
