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: 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 Fresno. 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.
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. Top three winners are also entered in the drawing for the grand prize after the series is complete. That means you have a 1/12 chance of winning it all.
Payout: First place receives 70%, second place receives 20%, and third place receives 10%. The more participants there are, the bigger the pot will be.
The Event Series: There will be a total of four events. Event are in the Bay area, Sacramento, Fresno/Central Valley and Reno Tahoe.
