Scores of patrons and participants gathered for the 2018 staging of the Poker Run held on Sunday, May 27.
By all indications, the event was a success.
The Poker Run involves boaters making several stops across the BVI; the first of which was at Scrub Island.
The second stop was at Foxy’s Bar and Restaurant on Jost Van Dyke, the third at Pirates Bight on Norman Island, the fourth at the Tortola Pier Park, and the final at Leverick Bay on Virgin Gorda.
Participants of the event travelled the pre-designated route and selected a playing card at each stop until they complete the route at Leverick Bay Resort & Marina on Virgin Gorda.
In the end, participants who held the best poker hand were crowned Poker Run champions.
A large portion of the $250 entry fee is being donated to charity.
