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.

Full post is here. If you liked this, you might also enjoy this profile done on him by Johns Hopkins Magazine, highlighting the interesting intersection between his professional and poker lives.
