German Virgin

If you hold a Pair of nines, e.g. 9♣ 9, your starting hand is called German Virgin. The number 'nine' sounds like the german word "nein", which means "no" in English. Therefore, when you have the starting hand 'nine, nine' it sounds like you say "no, no" in German.

The hand is also known as Wayne Gretzky.
