    Post problem in a sentence

    Hello,

    I'm having a problem in a sentence.

    Thank God, my Czech friend from the dinner table came by and asked me whether I would like to play chess. Luck would have it, I did play.

    In this sentence what does 'Luck would have it' mean?

    If you can explain the meaning I'll be so glad :)

    Thanks!

    It is usually heard as "as luck would have it." To happen by chance. Look here. as luck would have it - Idioms - by the Free Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.
