18th Annual Memorial Poker Run

First, the poker run is a charitable fund raising event that gives players an opportunity to play “a card game” on the water. It is definitely not a race. There is a limit of seventy five boats, but captains can have as many players and registered guests on board as their legal capacity allows. The boats travel to seven card stops situated all over the lake to retrieve a playing card at each stop at the end, each player presents their best five cards to be eligible for several thousand dollars in cash prizes. The first player to get four aces receives $5000.00. The SMLBA has awarded this top prize numerous times. There is also a $1500.00 prize for the best hand, $500 for second best, $250 for third best, and many other cash awards for various categories such as best appearing crew and the most players on a boat. Proceeds from the event go to various lake organizations such as The Smith Mountain Lake Marine Volunteer Fire Dept.
