Lake of the Ozarks Spring Harbor Hop 2019
During the Harbor Hop, each participant creates a 7-card poker hand by stopping at various checkpoints and drawing one card. Your first card will be drawn wherever you decide to sign up. All players can draw as many hands as they are willing to pay for. When you draw your 7th and final card for that hand, you must turn it in at that checkpoint.
The top 10 hands win cash prizes. But, if you have a bad hand, don’t just toss it. The four worst hands receive a piece of the pot as well. Plus, organizers plan on awarding 10 random hands with cash prizes, too. You can choose to hop from section to section, picking up cards along the way. Or stay in one section to create your poker hand. Besides the overall winners, the best hand from each section receives a cash prize as well. In order to qualify for that, simply draw all seven cards from one specific section, whichever one you want. Finally, make sure you submit your official hand(s) by 7 pm.
Spring Harbor Hop Checkpoints
The Lake Ozark Spring Harbor Hop 2019 includes four different checkpoints. Each checkpoint includes several different businesses where participants can pick up cards to create their poker hand. Stay in each section or travel around from place to place. But, in order to be entered into the individual section pot, you must draw all seven of the cards from the businesses located in one section only.
- Section I – Gravois Arm
- Section II – Main Channel, Dam
- Section III – Main Channel, 13.5MM to 26MM
- Section IV – Main Channel & Big Niangua Arm, 28.5MM to 38MM
