Kata Rocks is bringing
the famous American Poker Run to Phuket

The third edition of the Kata Rocks Poker Run (KRPR) will take place on 11 December 2022 and is a fun around the island tour starting from Kata Rocks. Participating boats will circumnavigate the island in a clockwise direction picking up a playing card at Xana Beach Club, Koh Rang Noi and Banana Beach before returning to Kata Rocks for the last card and collecting their Poker Run T-shirt – before enjoying the free beers and BBQ.

The winner is the boat captain with the best poker hand, who will have his/her name added to the Kata Rocks Poker Run Trophy and will win a 2-night complimentary stay in a Sky Pool Villa at Kata Rocks.
