Poulsbo Viking Tour's Poker Run

We're having a Poker Run!

We've decided to mix things up a bit at the 2017 Viking Tour. Instead of having a Time Trial in which only elite cyclists can have a realistic chance of winning, we are having a Poker Run that everybody has an equal chance of winning!
 

Here is how it works:

The object is to have the best poker hand at the end of the ride. Having the best hand and winning is purely a matter of chance. All riders who want to participate will collect 5 playing cards to make a poker hand over the course of the ride. Riders collect the 5 playing cards as follows:
  • All riders will receive one card at the start.
  • Freyja (15 mile) riders will collect 3 cards at rest stop #1, and one card at the finish.
  • Thor (30 mile) riders will collect 2 cards at rest stop #1, one card at rest stop #2, and one card at the finish.
  • Odin (60 mile) riders will collect 1 card at rest stop #1, one card at rest stop #2, one card at rest stop #3, and one card at the finish.
Each rider will turn their cards in at the designated location at the finish where their poker hand will be scored. Poker hand scoring will be as shown on page two. Because we are using multiple card decks, hands with “Five of a Kind” are possible, but will be scored as “Four of a Kind”. Prizes will be awarded to the three highest hands, regardless of route ridden.

Have fun and good luck!
