    Bay Are Poker Run - March 23rd

    Click here to enlarge

    EuroSunday Poker Run series is a fun and casual event that highlights what we love to do, drive our cars. Our series has regional qualifiers where winners can compete in the championship event for ultimate bragging rights. The following is a break-down of how the event works.

    Players: A team consists of the participants riding in a single car. A team can consist of a single driver, or as many passengers as a single vehicle can legally hold.

    Objective: Our poker run is a simple 5-card stud game. Each team is trying to get the best hand possible.

    How to Play: The Poker Run begins when each participating team/car is given a packet with a playing card and a route map to the next checkpoint. At each check point, teams grab a new packet with a playing card and a route to the next checkpoint. This continues until each team reaches the fifth and final checkpoint.

    How to Win: This Poker Run is about the experiences and the adventure, but the prizes at the end are not bad either ;-). The winning team is the one with the best hand at the end of the rally. Payouts are given to the teams with the top three hands. Additionally, awards are given in two categories: the team that was the most directionally challenged (aka, got lost), and to the team that shows the most spirit.

    In addition to the pot winnings, Hooked On Driving will be providing the winner of the EuroSunday Poker Run Series a free Day on Track experience! The more Poker Runs you enter, the better chance of winning!

    This is for the Bay Area Qualifier - The start line and finish line of the event are at Santa Row in San Jose CA. Following the Rally, everyone will meet at the lunch spot, being - The Counter - 3055 Olsen Avenue, San Jose, CA, for prizes and good food.

    The event costs cover the following:
    - Poker buy-in
    - Window Decals
    - Swag / prizes
    - Event Insurance

    Very interesting but I mean is it just random chance to get the best hand? No skill involved?

    Depends on how you look at it. There is some skill involved which has to be figured out.

    We use more than one deck to keep it interesting. So the question is do get there first to have more choices or let some of the choices thin out and have a better pic. First does not necessarily mean better choices. Last time we did this the winner was the one who stayed in the middle of the groups. Anything more than that you will have to enter and play to find out =)

    Well I'm asking questions to see if this is something I would like to do.

    Anyway, if you get there first you have more choices?

    Better discretion on how the event is done.

    How to Play: At the start of the event, teams are given a packet with a playing card and a map. The map has a suggested route to the next stop where teams will be able to choose their next packet with a playing card and a map to the next stop. The packet you choose has similar odds as if a dealer dealt you a playing card. There are three stops in the course and the final stop is the finish line. If you follow the suggested route you will cover 154 mile in distance on some fun back roads.

    NOTES: This is not a time and distance rally or the fastest car wins event. It is more road rally in back roads of the Bay Area / Santa Cruz. Teams can use the suggest route or if they know the area choose their own path. Think Bull Run TV show. The past winners of our event have been the team in the middle of the groups as there is fewer packets to pick from.
