Since 2000, Stu Jones and the Florida Powerboat Club have been kicking off the new year with the first poker run in the nation!

This year’s run took place at the new Playa Key Largo Resort where 18 registered boats were able to take full advantage of the ultra high end resort and all of it’s updated docking facilities, making this new destination a shoe in for next year’s poker run. Although rough seas and high winds limited much of the run to the ICW and bay waters, the 90 mile round trip run to Marathon Key was a huge success and “Rocco” took home the grand prize in his 52 Skater.
