Registration for the inaugural Mentor Poker Run, July 21-22, on Lake Erie in Ohio opened this morning. There are 30 slots available for the run, which is organized and produced by Elite Poker Runs LLC and is being hosted by the Mentor Harbor Yachting Club. Though the two events are separate, the poker run is happening on the same weekend as the second Super Boat International Cleveland Construction Grand Prix in Mentor.

“There’s already a lot of interest in the Mentor run,” said Tony Scioli of Elite Poker Runs. “I think it will sell out quickly. It’s a great venue for a poker run.”
The entry fee of $350 per boat and driver includes the Friday night welcome dinner, a surprise gift and T-shirt, one hand for Saturday’s poker run, lunch during the run and a Saturday night awards dinner. Crewmember tickets are $175 per person and include the poker run lunch and both dinners, as well as an event T-shirt.
