What is a Poker Run?
A Poker run is not a race. Itís a game of chance and an assembly of vessels of all types. A Poker Run is fun on the water, boating at its most enjoyable, and a chance to renew old acquaintances and make new friends. Poker Runs are for the entire family.
Each boat navigates an easy course, stopping at checkpoints along the route to pick-up a sealed envelope containing a single playing card. At the final checkpoint, the envelopes are opened and the crew holding the best poker hand is declared the winner!
A Poker Run is an organised, activity orientated, fun filled event. Naturally it helps to have a great body of water, but equally as important are the card stops and special activities for entrants hroughout the poker run.
You do not have to know how to play Poker.
The Poker hand played requires no skill or knowledge of poker. The 5 cards dealt out during the event will be done so randomly in envelopes and all cards displayed for all to see then a winning hand is declared.
The poker rules with combinations and rankings of cards will be displayed on the day.
Any identical winning hands will be resolved with a simple cutting of a fresh deck.
