Poker in Tel Aviv
Avi Rubin is a professor of computer science, and he loves playing poker. He is currently spending a year in Israel, and recently wrote about his experience trying to track down a (underground) game of poker while overseas.
The GPS guided me to a part of town that I had never seen before, and my heart sank. It looked abandoned and seedy. Run down warehouses, not that well lit, and the kind of place where in the US, I would stay away from after dark and even during the day. I made up my mind that I would drive by the address and then just turn around and drive home.
