Frequently Asked Questions

What are the poker rules?

Poker hands are only for registered riders or drivers.  Passengers are ineligible to play.  If you do not show up on event day, you forfeit.  You are not permitted to have someone else play on your behalf if you do not attend.
This event is a 5 stop poker run.  You are competing for the best 5 card hand.  A BTR representative will be at each stop to hand you a card. You will be given a tracking sheet, where each card will be marked and initialed by a BTR representative.  Your tracking sheet will be cross referenced at the end point, with BTR’s master list from each stop. If you draw a duplicate card, you will have the opportunity to draw a replacement card. If you wish, you can purchase extra cards at the end point for $10/card (max 2 cards) in order to better your chances.
