Press Release: Seafair Poker Run 2015

Poker Run

Participants meet at a pre-arranged point, and pick up details of their route and the stops they need to make. Each participant is given a score card which will be filled in as they progress along the route. At each designated stop, the participants draw a card at random. The card drawn or dealt is recorded on each participant's score card/tally sheet, and the winner of the event is the participant who makes the best five-card poker hand at the end of the event.

 Seafair Boat Show Poker Run
  • 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.
  • Speedboat racers may draw cards from each stop until they get total of five cards on their Score Sheet/ Tally Sheet.
·         Distance:

From Mall of Asia: 26 nautical miles to Corregidor, Bataan (52 miles round trip)

1.       First Check Point - Participants will draw two cards
2.       Second Check Point - Participants will draw two cards
3.       3rd and Last Point - Participants will draw one card. Two additional cards maybe purchased for P 2, 000 each at the final stop
  • Only five cards may be played for best hand.
  • Upon picking card from one location, Participants must present their tally sheet, pick one card at a time, and lay it face up on the table. No duplicate cards can be used. Participants must draw additional card if an identical card is drawn. For example, if you draw the seven of clubs and you already have the seven of clubs on your score-card, then you must put the card back and re-draw another card.
  • It is the participants' responsibility to check their score sheet before leaving each checkpoint, to ensure that the card they drew is correctly recorded on their score sheet.
  • If playing more than one hand, the participant must present the appropriate Poker Hand Tally Sheet to be marked before each card is drawn.
  • Participants must complete the run at SM Seaside Terminal no later than 5:00 pm on December 6, 2015.
