What is a poker run? We used to play a harley game on my buddies old computer, called something like "Trip to Sturgis"...and in that game you raced someone else and picked up five cards and whoever had the best hand...well, everyone knows how to play poker. Is that how it works?

Jacobi, A Poker Run is a motorcycle event where riders travel over a predesignated course and at designated stopping points, select a card. At the end of the run, the rider with the best poker hand wins a prize. Poker Runs usually require a fee to enter with a part of the proceeds going to charity.

You must be a newbie all right. You you got the right idea. 5 cards from 5 places (usaly a bar & grill, cycle shop or a VFW such a place). Some times at the 5th stop you can buy a extra card. Most porker runs spilt the pot 50/50 the half to the winner half to the cause. Bigger runs raise so much money they do a cap (like $200-$500) so not to induce cheeting. The game can be played different ways too. Such as add all the cards valve and the highest points win or the winning type of hand is drawn.

Jacobi, sign yourself up for one (before the snow flies) you'll really enjoy yourself. In the old days they used to have rallys that were a little more creative, but the point is to ride, meet some new peeps, and raise a little cash for charity. We also do the same thing at a couples bowling league with each player paying to get in the pool and receiving a card for each strike.
