Elite Poker Runs LLC’s Anthony Scioli had hoped for the 30 boats in his inaugural Mentor Poker Run on Lake Erie in Ohio last weekend, but ended up with 21. He’d hoped for great weather, but ended up with a two-hour rain delay for Saturday’s lunch run to Nuevo Modern Mexican and Tequila Bar Restaurant behind the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. He’d hoped to have a helicopter for photographer Jeff Helmkamp to shoot from, but that, too, wasn’t in the card thanks to impending thunderstorms.
And the show went on.
