Loved the beginning of the poker game that involved Kirk, when Ciaran was explaining the 'poker face' to him then Kirk won in the end LOL! Oh, that Karl can do 'evil' can't it the beginning of a secret side to him?

Kirk's unreadable 'vacant' poker face was a direct lift and parody of a scene from an episode in the sitcom series 30Rock.

When expert poker player, the big boss Jack Donahy, loses to Kevin the receptionist hospitality clerk (a blood brother to Kirk ie., nothing happening much upstairs), the rest of the players who've all lost to Jack, realise Jack's legendary behavioural observational skills are failing against Kevin - because Kevin is so vacant even he himself doesn't know what he's thinking, thus making his face and body language impossible to read to expert poker players!

Nice cut to Kirk's face parodying Kevin's role in the sitcom.

Kirk and Kevin are to poker what Dustin Hoffman's, Rainman, is to casino's. LOL!

- See, I said he and Kirk were blood brothers!

Kevin? KEVIN?!?
Who the hell mentioned Kevin? I've been quoted out of context!

- By Kevin, I instead meant of course (at least for 30Rock fans) KENNETH!
