Poker Run begins today on Lake Cumberland

The annual Lake Cumberland Poker Run kicks off today and local marinas are ready to host the many high-powered boats that have been making their way to the area.

The Poker Run, headquartered at State Dock, is considered by the powerboat industry to be one of the top five poker runs in America.

Today, boats will take off to visit the other marinas on the lake. This portion of the event allows time for participants to get their cards punched and return to State Dock by Saturday evening to draw the best hand out of five cards.
