Key West Offshore Poker Run 2019

Key West Offshore Poker Run 2019

Updated: Key West Offshore Poker Run 2019

One of the biggest Poker Runs of the year is happening this weekend Nov. 6-11, 2019. The Key West Offshore Poker Run is an almost 400-mile roundtrip poker run from Miami to Key West. This year the event has over 200 poker run teams from all around the world that are participating. The Florida Powerboat Club was founded in 1993 as a membership-driven organization, to promote safe, responsible powerboating for boating enthusiasts around the area! This will be the FPC’s 27th Annual Key West Offshore Poker Run and a run you will not want to miss! There will be checkpoints in Key Largo, Islamorada, Marathon, and Bahia Honda. This four-day event will have entertainment every evening and great dining at the Conch Republic Seafood Company. There will also be a captain’s meeting at each venue (north and south) the night before the event starts. We are your East Coast Nor-Tech dealer keep an eye out for our team out on the water representing Nor-Tech!

How Poker Runs Work

Poker Runs start by each boat participating in navigating (speeding 75+mph) through a watercourse, stopping at five checkpoints along the way to pick up an envelope that has a single playing card enclosed. At the final checkpoint, the envelopes are opened and the boat with the best poker hand is prized the winner! You could say that winning is purely by chance!

Poker runs usually require a fee to participate, however, some of them are funded by sponsors and are completely free to register. Prizes, such as money, trophies, etc. are donated by the sponsors of the event and are given to the crew that has the best poker hand. Poker run coordinators try and make the runs as scenic and appealing as possible between each check points.
