    A poker run, as it relates to Geocaching is when there are (generally) five caches hidden, each of which contains playing cards. The participants find each cache, and remove one card. At the end of the day, all the participants compare their poker hands, with the best hand(s) winning a prize of some sort.

    what's to keep someone from going through the decks and picking out the cards they want??
    Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

    Each card will be in a sealed envelope - you won't know what it is that you are taking.

    To add what Beach Comber said. The sealed envelopes can not be open until everyone is back to the event.

    I was thinking the same thing . . . when we've done ATV poker runs we've never had to worry about this since we had marked decks and everyone's card was written down as they drew (obviously this would not be possible to do with a cache poker run.)
