Poker Run Rules

  1. You must be a paid member of SWFMAS* to participate in the poker run prizes (not paid, you are still welcome to tag along, or you can join in advance through the website or in person the morning of the run) *One hand/set of cards per membership.
  2. Seven cards will be given out at the first stop with three cards given out at each additional stop.  If you make purchases at a given stop, you will be eligible to receive additional cards as outlined below.  (If you miss the first stop, you can still get your three cards plus purchases at whatever stop you join the Poker Run)
  3. If you make a purchase at a given store, you will receive one extra card.  For each additional $50 in value of your purchase(s), you will receive an additional card (Ex. $5 purchase = 1 extra card.  $51 to $100 = 2 extra cards. $101 to $150 purchase = 3 extra cards...and so on).  Obviously, purchases must be made prior to the drawing for the high hand at that given store. 
  4. Pick your best five cards for your hand.  Winner will turn in the winning hand (but can keep any extra cards for the next stop).  Losers can keep their cards for the next stop.
  5. At each additional stop, you will be given three more cards plus extra cards for purchases as outlined in #3 above.
  6.  Repeat items #4 and #5 until we run out of stops and prizes.
