Kata Rocks Poker Run (KRPR) 2020

Kata Rocks is bringing the famous American Poker Run to Phuket.

Since its inception in the early 1990s in America, Poker Runs have spread across several continents and now Kata Rocks is bringing one to Asia and Phuket for the first time. A Poker Run is designed for fast speed boats and is a friendly rally race where the entrants pick up a poker card at each of five designated locations around the course. The winner has the best poker hand with their five cards so it is purely a game of chance. Think Miami Vice – fast boats and beautiful people with the coolest wrap around shades!

The inaugural Kata Rocks Poker Run will take place on 12th December 2020 and will be an around the island race. Starting from Kata Rocks, participating boats will circumnavigate the island in a clockwise direction picking up a playing card at each of the five designated checkpoints before returning to Kata Rocks for beers, burgers and a Poker Run T-shirt. The captain of the winning boat, with the best poker hand will win a trophy and a 2-night complimentary stay in a villa at Kata Rocks (Terms and conditions apply).

With lots of cameras and drones filming around the island, this is the perfect event to promote Phuket and to re-invigorate tourism so make sure you’re wearing your coolest shades!
