What is a “poker run” anyway?
A poker run is an excuse to meet up, travel, and have a good time at the 5 stops. IT IS NOT A RACE. Participants meet at a pre-arranged point, and pick up details of their route and the stops they need to make. Each participant will be given a score card which will be filled in as they progress along the route. At each designated stop, the participants will be dealt a card at random. The card drawn will be recorded on each participant’s score card, and the winner of the event is the participant who makes the best five card poker hand at the end of the run. A picnic will be held with prizes at the end.
* The first thing to stress is that although this is a “run”, there are no prizes for speed – it does not matter who is first to complete the course. It is not a race.
* The winning hand is determined by standard poker hand rankings. You will be dealt a single card at each stop. The Dealer will mark off your score sheet with the card dealt. If a duplicate card is drawn the dealer will re-deal from the next card on the deck. 1 Deck of cards per stop will be used. No Wilds.
* Each participant must have a poker score sheet / card, and this must be filled in by the organizers, not by the participant.
