German virgin

German virgin

In poker, a starting hand of two nines. So called due to "nine, nine" sounding like the German nein, nein, meaning "no, no." Having been dealt a German virgin right off the bat, I was hoping for a third nine to be laid on the table.

No doubt someone is working on a poker show called the German Virgin, codenamed 99 - as in nein, nein.
