    Default Why is K8 nicknamed Kokomo?

    I've tried to google it, and found no answer. I'm wondering if any of you guys happen to know the answer.

    I've never heard K8 called that until now, and wasn't able to find an explanation via Google Search either. I suppose you could use each half of the "8" and double back to the "K" to get "KoKo" but it still seems inspired by some Tom Cruise/Beach Boys fan.

    On a somewhat related note, my favorite starting hand nickname is "Full Employment" for J-4... supposedly because anyone who plays it needs to have a full-time job in order to continue doing so. I thought it was cute to always see a flop with J4 back when I played all the time. That was until PokerTracker reminded me that J4's nickname was predictably accurate.
