a.    Decisions of the Station management with respect to the Promotion are final.

Five of a Kind: If more than one hand has five of a kind, the higher card wins (Five Aces beats five kings, which beats five queens and so on) 

Straight Flush: Straight flush is 5 cards in order, such as 5-6-7-8-9, that are all of the same suit. As in a regular straight, you can have an ace either high (A-K-Q-J-T) or low (5-4-3-2-1). However, a straight may not ‘wraparound’. (Such as K-A-2-3-4-which is not a straight). An Ace high straight-flush is called a Royal Flush and is the highest natural hand. 

Four of a Kind: Four of a kind is simply four cards of the same rank. If there are two or more hands that qualify, the hand with the higher-rank four of a kind wins. 

Full House: A full house is a three of a kind and a pair, such as K-K-K-5-5. Ties are broke first by the three of a kind, then pair. So K-K-K-2-2 beats Q-Q-Q-A-A, which beats Q-Q-Q-J-J. 

Flush: A flush is a hand where all of the cards are the same suit, such as J-8-5-3-2, all of spades. 

Straight: A straight is 5 cards in order, such as 4-5-6-7-8. An ace may either be high (A-K-Q-J-T) Or low (5-4-3-2-1). When straights tie,the highest straight wins. (AKQJT beats KQJT9 down to 5432A). If two straights have the same value (AKQJT vs AKQJT) they split the pot. 

Three of a Kind: Three cards of any rank, matched with two cards that are not a pair. Again, highest three of a kind wins. 

Two Pair: This is two distinct pairs of card and a 5th card. The highest pair wins ties. If both hands have the same high pair, the second pair wins. If both hands have the same pairs, the high card wins. 

Pair: One pair with three distinct cards.

Winners: Will be the highest 5 card poker hand. In case of a tie the winner for each prize will be determined by a cut of the cards with the high card winning.

b.    Poker Run participants must have their best 5 cards in their possession at the Poker Run to Cabo San Lucas Party on April 19th, 2023 from 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm at The Boathouse in Fox Lake.

c.    The winners must execute and return any required affidavit of eligibility and/or liability/publicity release within ten (10) days of winning or prize will be forfeited and /the prize will be given to the next highest hand as determined and recorded at the Poker Run Party at The Boathouse, April 19, 2023 from 4:30pm – 6:30pm.  If a potential winner fails to sign and return the required affidavit of eligibility and/or liability/publicity release within the required time period, or if a prize or prize notification is returned the winner forfeits the prize.


a.    Payments of all federal, state and local taxes are solely the responsibility of the winner.  The winner will be required to complete and submit an IRS Form W-9 with the winner’s full Social Security Number or the equivalent for receipt of any prize valued at $600 or more or for any prizes awarded by the Station (or any other Good Karma station in Station’s market) in a calendar year with an aggregate value of $600 or more.  Failure to submit a complete W-9 or equivalent will result in forfeiture of the prize.  Such winnings of $600 or more will be reported to the IRS.
