Poker runs are never really about strategy, unless your strategy is to get out there, go places, and enjoy the journey.
Many books have been written about the art and math of poker, but you won't need them. Everything has been left to chance, so all you can do is visit seven different airports between July 1 and September 30, and check in each time with the AOPA app (version 2.6 or higher, please).
There will be four winners when all hands are down, and not one of them will have demonstrated any skill in bluffing. Each Pilot Passport check-in generates a random card that is added to your hand. You can check in only once per day at any one airport, though you can visit as many different airports in a day as you care to—and check in for another card at each. Once seven cards have been added to your hand, the Pilot Passport system picks the best five to become your final hand. That's it. You don't have to know a flush from a straight, you just have to wait to see if your full house holds up among the best hands. (If "full house" makes you think about a television show and not a card game, we've got you covered.)
